Looking for ways out of this gesticulating scream fest, I find it helpful to see what Patricia Roberts Miller has to say. She’s compiled a useful list for times when reasoned argument is possible.

I’m proud of my students this semester in Intermediate Composition: Argument in the Disciplines. This was the first semester the course has been offered, and the students stepped up and built a website about written argument for the student community at UCB. The website (Argument at UC Berkeley) contains papers that the students wrote during the course, as well as advice from professionals and academics whom they interviewed. Students in subsequent semesters will maintain and expand the site.
Here’s a link, if you want to check out the site: http://argument.berkeley.edu/
