Writing

profileAmeera03

over the course of the semester, you have also been required to evaluate the arguments of both peers and professional writers. For this discussion board, read the point/ counterpoint "Apple's Corporate Responsibility for Distracted Driving" written by Katherine Mangu-Ward and Jason Mars. Choose the author whom you feel makes the more successful claim. Then, explain-using specific quotations and examples from the article-why you believe that this author has produced the better argument . In order to gauge the success of the opposing pieces, think back to the rhetorical triangle: Does the author appeal to logos through the use of facts, statistics, logic, etc? Are anecdotes , narrative examples , personal stories, etc. used to create pathos? Does the author invoke ethos by appealing to the reader's sense of right and wrong ? Also, does the author establish his /her credibility through knowledge, tone, etc? Is there anything else about the author's writing that is particularly effectual in helping him / h * e * r to reinforce his/her thesis?
