Keys to Academic Argument

* Make your argument seem like it is original; what you want to say has probably been said before * Be aware there are some things you are not allowed to teach to students; don't try to deny the Holocaust, it won't work * Research to find something; don't try to support a conclusion that you already have; expertise wins; logos is valued over ethos and pathos * Don't plagiarize; Give credit where credit is due
