Question and answer
Q: What causes or allows a team member to support an argument that he or she does not find credible? Does this lack of individual support weaken the final paper? Explain why or why not
A: The need to explore such questions has never been more pressing than it is today, as language intended to persuade us ? to gain our assent (and often our money, our votes, and even our souls) ? surrounds us more than ever before. [ In advertisements, news stories, textbooks, reports, and print and electronic media of all kinds, language competes for our attention and argues for our agreement.
Since argument so pervades our lives, we need to be able to recognize and use it effectively ? and to question our own arguments as well as those put forth by others. In one important sense, all language use has an argumentative edge. When you greet friends warmly, you wish to convince them that you are genuinely glad to see them, that you value their presence. Even apparently objective news reporting has strong argumentative overtones. By putting a particular story on the front page, for example, a paper argues that this subject is more important than others; by using emotional language or by focusing on certain details, a newscaster tries to persuade us to view an event in a particular way. Consider the different ways reporters might describe the accompanying image, such as an outpouring of support for our troops or a pro-war rally. ]

User: 8. Individuals often have a strong emotional connection to the positions they argue in essays. Do teams have a similarly intense connection? If not, what fills this role for teams?
