Ap lang q3 help

  1. 1. • If you look at the reader feedbackfor the past few years, you ‘ll seethat the synthesis and argumentprompts require you to makeYOUR CLAIM CLEARLY using logic!That’s right—you must use LOGIC!• As a result, these lend themselveswell to a Toulmin logic structure.
  2. 2. A Quick Review of Toulmin:• Claim: the argument you wish toprove• Qualifiers: any limits you place onyour claim (can be expressed inadverbs like usually, sometimes, etc.)• Reasons/evidence: support for yourclaim• Warrants: underlying assumptionsthat support your claim• Backing: Evidence for a warrant
  3. 3. What does this mean for a thesis?• It means, there’s an easy way toremember how to structure yourthesis for Q1 and Q3:(Your claim) proves valid/true, to(a qualified degree), because of(reasons), which make sense whenconsidering (the warrant), as shown in(backing).
  4. 4. Another thesis option:• Because (support), therefore,(claim), since (warrant), on accountof (backing).–An AP example:• Because it is raining, I should take myumbrella, since it will keep me dry, onaccount of the fabric is waterproof,unless there’s a hole in it.
