Argument Writing

(Write to Convince or Persuade... aka to Argue a point)


Choose ONE of the following two prompts: 2a) Imagine that you are determined to go to a particular college or have your heart set on a particular career. Your friends do not approve of your choice. Conduct research to support your choice of this college or career and prepare a persuasive presentation in which you convince your friends to support your choice. 1a) Read a newspaper or listen to the news to find a current political, social, economic or environmental issue about which you have a strong opinion. Conduct research to learn more information about the issue, and prepare a persuasive presentation that persuades your peers to believe as you do. SL

How you will complete assignment:


1. Research necessary information in order to argue your point. a. You want to be able to provide REASONS to support your choice. b. AKA facts, statistics, interesting items, programs of interest, etc 2. Find images, videos, quotes to add to your poster to give it color 3. You will be using Glogster, an online interactive poster maker, in order to create persuasive posters. Your poster should include your answer to one of the prompts above. So, it is either a persuasive poster for the college of your choice or your opinion on an issue. Think of it like a persuasive advertisement! 4. The more creative and persuasive the better! You are DEFENDING and JUSTIFYING your point and you have to PERSUADE or CONVINCE someone to believe you (without being offensive, be logical!). Use logic (it should make sense), emotion (appeal to feelings or heartstrings), and ethics (make yourself believable by showing youve put in the grunt work/research) 5. To make the poster, Go to Glogster Login Page 6. Enter CODE: 4UD695
