Examples:Transition Al Gore, star of An Inconvenient Truth and Nobel prize winner, argues that it is important to save the environment.Lead-In In his Nobel prize acceptance speech, he states,Quote “it is time to make peace with the planet” (278).Transition Bjorn Lomborg disagrees with Gore’s idea that we should adopt the Kyoto Protocol. Instead, he wants to focus on goals that could make a large influence now.Lead-In He argues that,Quote “According to UN estimates, for $75 million a year—half the cost of implementing the Kyoto Protocol—we could provide clean drinking water, sanitation, basic health care, and education to every single human being on Earth. Shouldn’t that be a higher priority?” (261).
  5. 5. Your turn! Use the TLQ method to introduce the below quote by Alex Steffen from his article “On Earth Day”TransitionLead-InQuote “we need to make people participants, not consumers” (269).
  6. 6. Step 3: Discuss the quote What does the quote mean? How does it support your point? Use phrases like…  In other words, X believes _________________.  In making this comment, X argues that __________.  X is insisting that __________________.  X’s point is that ________________.  The essence of X’s argument is that ___________.
  7. 7. Example 1 Al Gore, star of An Inconvenient Truth and Nobel prize winner, argues that it is important to save the environment. In his Nobel prize acceptance speech, he states, “it is time to make peace with the planet” (278). Gore suggests that we are at war with the planet, implying that our actions are causing grievous and deliberate harm.
  8. 8. Example 2 Bjorn Lomborg disagrees with Gore’s idea that we should adopt the Kyoto Protocol. Instead, he wants to focus on goals that could make a large influence now. He argues that, “according to UN estimates, for $75 million a year—half the cost of implementing the Kyoto Protocol—we could provide clean drinking water, sanitation, basic health care, and education to every single human being on Earth. Shouldn’t that be a higher priority?” (261). Lomborg is insisting that we help people who are suffering now rather than focusing on the people who may suffer in the future.
