When communicating academically, it is important to use arguments to support your case. Toulmin's Model can help you build sound arguments. Try it right away with an interactive exercise.

Toulmin’s model of argumentation can help you structure your argumentation.

You can also use the model to structure your assignment as an overall argument. This way, you make sure that you produce a coherent assignment that makes its point.

The concept for this stop as well as the content of this page and the interactive exercise was created by Tine Wirenfeldt Jensen and based on Signe Hegelund's book Akademisk Argumentation (Samfundslitteratur, 2000). The text appearing in the exercise is from the book.
