Description

Best-selling authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell have brought simplicity to the study of argument with the third edition of Practical Argument. A straightforward, full-color, accessible introduction to argumentative writing, the text employs an exercise-driven, step-by-step approach to get to the heart of what students need to understand both classical and contemporary argument. Practical Argument foregoes the technical terminology that confuses students and explains concepts in understandable, everyday language, with examples that are immediately relevant to students' lives. Thoroughly updated with exciting new topics and readings, Practical Argument is now available as (or packaged with) a LaunchPad, and online resource that provides: Interactive exercises and tutorials for reading, writing, and research LearningCurve adaptive, game-like practice that helps students focus on the topics where they need the most help, such as fallacies, claims, evidence, and other key elements of argument Comprehension quizzes on the readings and argument instruction Practical Argument is also available in a short version without the reader.
