Argumentation-Evolution Project KickOff Letter 2017-03-01!!!

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.51.49 AMScreen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.51.49 AMScreen Shot 2015-01-26 at 10.51.49 AM
To:         Scientific Argumentation- The Focus Is Evolution In The 21st Century

From:    CEO

Date:      2017-03-01

There are lots of arguments. Often it seems today that everything is (or turns into) an argument. A baseball player and umpire argue about a called strike. A consumer argues with a customer service- representative of a large retail store about the merchandise return policy. Two attorneys argue in court before a jury about the innocence of the accused. Presidential candidates argue over, or so it seems, any and all things political. Congress fights! Yes it sure seems that as humans we have a real penchant for arguing. We argue a great deal. Does it ever get us anywhere? In Science there is argumentation, but it is different!

However we contemplate the images above, all seem to image up some sort of fight. Someone is yelling and finger-pointing at another. There may be somebody crying. Someone may be pounding his fist on the reception desk. The politician may seem to be advancing some idea or plan that seems to leave the audience dumbfounded and scratching their heads wondering if they witnessed a lie or mistruth.

None of the above could ever seem very uplifting or productive. The end of such would never seemingly produce anything but a loser, another loser, only maybe a winner, but certainly hard feelings and anger. The discourse imagined above, would never lead to uplifting feelings, new thinking, learning, understanding, settlements, common discourse, future planning, breakthroughs, and ideas of collaboration going forward. However, this is just what argumentation in Science intends to yield. Argumentation in Science is essential for to understanding Science and moving Science forward. Human endeavors are uplifted by scientific argumentation. Scientific argumentation does get us somewhere. It is integral to science and learning. It is a tool you could use in life. Learn it. Practice it. Do it.

Your team challenge first, here is to learn about the means and methods used in scientific argumentation. Your challenge is to learn about all aspects of scientific argumentation including claims, warrants, evidence, and rebuttal. Your written and presented argumentation described herein must include all the above aspects of scientific argumentation. Your second team challenge is to take any and all scientific argumentation approaches and in a 21st century way, apply your skills, knowledge, and expertise to the American societal dilemma concerning evolution. Your team must add uplifting discourse, understanding, and learning by presenting a cogent argument concerning evolution on Earth and draw at least one discreet rebuttal to other scientifically argued ideas. Evolution is the focus.

Evolution argumentation teams must meet the following product development, time, and date requirements:

PBL Project Kickoff Date                    Thursday/Friday            March 02, 03, 2017

Team Contract Submission                 Thursday/Friday            March 09, 10, 2017

Team POL Preview                                   Thursday/Friday            March 16, 17, 2017

Team POL Presentation                    Thursday/Friday           March 20, 21, 2017

Team PBL Post-Assessment                   Monday/Tuesday          March 23, 14, 2017

Each team presenting evolution argumentation is wished the best in this endeavor. Good luck. Go get them!

Modes of Persuasion – Pathos, Ethos, Logos!!!

Modes of Persuasion

The modes of persuasion are devices in rhetoric that classify the speaker’s appeal to the audience. They are: ethos,pathos, and logos.

Aristotle‘s On Rhetoric describes the modes of persuasion thus:

Persuasion is clearly a sort of demonstration, since we are most fully persuaded when we consider a thing to have been demonstrated.
Of the modes of persuasion furnished by the spoken word there are three kinds. […] Persuasion is achieved by the speaker’s personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. […] Secondly, persuasion may come through the hearers, when the speech stirs their emotions. […] Thirdly, persuasion is effected through the speech itself when we have proved a truth or an apparent truth by means of the persuasive arguments suitable to the case in question.

Main article: Ethos[edit]Ethos

Ethos (plural: ethe) is an appeal to the authority or honesty of the presenter. It is how well the presenter convinces the audience that he or she is qualified to present (speak) on the particular subject. It can be done in many ways:

  • By being a notable figure in the field in question, such as a college professor or an executive of a company whose business is that of the subject.
  • By having a vested interest in a matter, such as the person being related to the subject in question.
  • By using impressive logos that shows to the audience that the speaker is knowledgeable on the topic.
  • By appealing to a person’s ethics or character.

[edit]Pathos

Main article: Pathos

Pathos (plural: patha or pathea) is an appeal to the audience’s emotions. It can be in the form of metaphorsimile, a passionate delivery, or even a simple claim that a matter is unjust. Pathos can be particularly powerful if used well, but most speeches do not solely rely on pathos. Pathos is most effective when the author or speaker demonstrates agreement with an underlying value of the reader or listener.

In addition, the speaker may use pathos to appeal to fear, in order to sway the audience. Pathos may also include appeals to audience imagination and hopes; done when the speaker paints a scenario of positive future results of following the course of action proposed.

[edit]Logos

Main article: Logos

Logos (plural: logoi) is logical appeal or the simulation of it, and the term logic is derived from it. It is normally used to describe facts and figures that support the speaker’s topic. Having a logos appeal also enhances ethos (see above) because information makes the speaker look knowledgeable and prepared to his or her audience. However, the data can be confusing and thus confuse the audience. Logos can also be misleading or inaccurate, however meaningful it may seem to the subject at hand. In some cases, inaccurate, falsified, or miscontextualized data can even be used to enact a pathos effect. Such as is the case with casualty numbers, which while not necessarially falsified, may include minor casualties (injuries) that are equated with deaths in the mind of an audience and therefore can evoke the same effect as a death toll.
