Organized around common rhetorical situations that occur all around us, INVENTING ARGUMENTS shows you that argument is a living process rather than a form to be modeled. Through the text's prominent focus on invention, you will learn to recognize the rhetorical elements of any argumentative situation and apply the tools of argument effectively in your own writing. The basic layers of argument are introduced in early chapters, with material arranged into increasingly sophisticated topics beginning with the most obvious or explicit layers (claims) and moving to more implied or "hidden" layers (assumptions, values, beliefs, ideology). By the time you finish Part 1, you will have a thorough understanding of argument, which you can then apply not just to the invention projects in Chapters 7-12 but also to your writing for other college courses and beyond.

About the Author:

John Mauk has a Ph.D. in rhetoric and writing from Bowling Green State University and a Masters in language and literature from the University of Toledo. Scholarship includes an article on critical geography and composition (COLLEGE ENGLISH, March 2003). Mauk now teaches composition and rhetoric courses at Northwestern Michigan College. In 2007, he served on the NCTE Nominating Committee.

Review:

"Every time I get a review copy of a new composition text in the mail, I find myself comparing it to INVENTING ARGUMENTS. They all come up short. Inventing Arguments has everything I need in one book."

"This is one of the most student-friendly texts on argument. The arrangement of chapters, focus on specific writing projects and the discussion of the nuts and bolts of drafting an argument paper responds to the way students ask their questions."

"I think the writing and workshop activities are well crafted. The questions posed to students in the exercises sound like questions I might ask in class."
