Support Analysis
  • After you have read chapter 2, go back and review the How Do We Build Arguments section (pages 35-39). Take what you have learned about common categories of support and identify the types of support you see in the excerpt from "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" found on pages 262-269.
    • Start a new page titled Support Analysis followed by your name or initials
    • On that page, identify some of the claims made by Nicholas Carr in his argument
    • Then, list the different pieces of support you find for each of the claims.
    • Identify what category you think that support belongs to: evidence, verification, or illustration
    • Finally, identify whether you think the support is building credibility, activating reasoning, or evoking emotion. See table 2.1 on page 37 of your text for more information
