  • 1. Argument as Conversation: The Role of Inquiry in Writing a Researched Argument Stuart Greene

    • Can be answered with the tools you have
    • Conveys a clear idea of who you are answering the question for
    • Organized around an issue

  • 3. Asking good questions
    • Open to dispute
    • No prepackaged answers (145)
    • Can be answered with the tools you have
    • Conveys a clear idea of who you are answering the question for
    • Organized around an issue
    • Explores how, why, whether, the extent to which (148)
    • Did your first paper ask a good question?
    • How can you use these guidelines when developing a research question for your semester project?
  • 4. What is framing, according to Greene?
    • “ a metaphor for describing the lens, or perspective, from which writers present their arguments ” (149).
    • Let’s practice framing.
    • Start with your argument about literacy and technology.
    • Pass to another person.
    • Each person takes a slightly different “angle” on the argument or topic
  • 5.
    • Greene suggests that “r e ading necessarily plays a prominent role in the many forms of writing that you do, but not simply as a process of gathering information ” (146). In what ways is reading essential to research besides as a process of gathering information?
  • 6.
    • Greene writes, “e v ery time you write an argument, the way you position yourself will depend on three things: which previously stated arguments you share, which previously stated arguments you want to refute, and what new opinions and supporting information you are going to bring to the conversation ” (147). Did you do all these things with your first paper? How can this idea help you with your final paper?
  • 7.
    • How can other people’s texts serve as tools for helping you say more about your own ideas? (151)
  • 8.
    • Greene differentiates between research as a process of collecting information for the sake of it, and research as a process of discovery and purposeful use of information. Which view of research does he seem to support? Which sounds better/more valuable to you? (155)
  • 9.
    • Greene claims that “r e search has the potential to change readers’ worldviews and your own” (155). Do you think this is true? Is it true of the research topics that you’ve been thinking about?
