Today working in groups and looking at the analytical patterns of development on the blue
handout. Look at:
1. Where do these patterns typically occur?
2. Why do academic writers use them?
Identify some of the patterns in the Fahnestock and Myers paper.
Goal is to illuminate/show/reveal. We look at a whole by examining the parts first.
Another goal is to generate knowledge.
These analytical patterns of development help to reach these goals.
Classification, division and definition are inseparable. When analyzing a paper they are usually
found one after the other.
Classification looking back and enlarging the view on something
- Try to identify related classes
- Creating names for things and sorting with a purpose
- Should recognize you are at the high levels of extraction
- Heuristic: What kind is it? What “class” does this belong to?
Example: Page 334 of Fahnestock
- She is classifying the two basic appeals to make in epideictic arguments
o “the wonder”
o “the application”
Example: Page 342 - The last paragraph
- Five types of statements according to the degree of certainty
Example: Page bottom 332- top 333
- Aristotle’s three types of persuasive speech
o These are then divided and given definitions
Example: Naming her data in the titles
- She names public intermediates
Division reduce the view to differentiate
- Make parts smaller and arrange them in a way to see some type of order
- Can’t talk about everything so create some division to talk about the key topics
- Relationship between parts helps to understand the whole
- How can I divide my topic into parts? What does it consist of?
