1. Define Academic Argument.
a. An academic argument is any claim or idea that is defended based on evidence supporting it.
2. What is the difference between an inductive and deductive reasoning? Give an example of your own.
a. Inductive reasoning is when you draw an conclusion from specific examples. For instance, my skin becomes irritated and develops a rash when it comes in contact with grass.

g. Step seven is to concentrate on the material you are gathering. Evidence is what solidifies the academic argument. Summarize, Analyze, evaluate, and synthesize each major piece of supporting details.
h. Step eight is to take care of special documentation. Citing your evidence is very important. It is best to keep record of where your information is coming from.
