It has been said that every piece of writing is an argument. Perhaps it is true that everything we write includes some element of persuasion. But even in a document that is intended to be objective and impartial, data is used to arrive at a conclusion. And between the two lies interpretation. The flow of logic from the data to the conclusion often seems so natural, so obvious, so simple that the writer fails to include it. But that is precisely the part of the document that causes the most disagreement. Consider this—in every single trial, both the prosecution and the defense are limited to the same set of evidence. It is their interpretation alone that convinces the jury to rule in their favor. Every piece of data is open to interpretation, yet in many scientific documents, the data is presumed to speak for itself. A simple paragraph structure called HEAT will help to ensure that the data in your documents is analyzed to clearly demonstrate a hypothesis that supports the thesis of the argument. - - Objectives—At the completion of this webinar you will be able to: - - Identify and create a thesis statement. - Identify the various hypotheses, claims, or premises that constitute the thesis. - Determine the relationship between evidence and a hypothesis and organize a paragraph to differentiate between the two. - Analyze the evidence to demonstrate that relationship explicitly in the paragraph. - Connect the hypothesis to the thesis in the paragraph.
