Relating Class Notes To Major


My major is economics. I usually deal in numbers and I’m great at math. Most of the time, composition and english in general doesn’t apply to my daily life. Today though, the fact that we all make claims daily and support them really did apply to my life and how i live everyday. In my everyday life, i  make claims, i support them with evidence and i judge whether they are reputable or not.




  • To tell a name is a claim
  • evidence of a name: ID, birth certificate, witness
  • Section 11
  • all evidence = support
  • “i don’t know” is a claim to not know
  • Claim: Im hungry
  • Support: growling stomach, angry, cold sweat, last time ate
  • Claire’s Claim: “I am tired”
  • Claire’s Support: sick, not enough sleep last night

  • Marina’s Support: browser history on travel site, call history, Bethel, dates: 14-23
  • “take my word for it.” – Doubt it
  • As a scholar suspend empathy
  • making claims with evidence is everywhere
  • Steps to being a scholar:
  1. notice claim
  2. attend to evidence
  3. see if evidence proves claim
