Write a 500-750 word argumentation/persuasion essay using any approach as a method of development.
An effective argumentative essay must have evidence to make its case; most arguments that occur in daily life happen in the heat of the moment and are more likely directed toward saving one's own pride than toward giving clear and supportive proof to one's claims.
Knowing how to brainstorm is going to save you from writing a weak essay. Also, knowing how to support your claims with evidence from outside sources will further strengthen your essay. For that reason, this assignment requires the use of two references (no internet sources). In addition, you will add a Works Cited page at the end of your essay. Finally, your Works Cited page will be in MLA (Modern Language Association) format so that all information provided will be easy for your reader to find.
Purpose: to persuade
Method of Development: your choice
For argumentative/persuasive topics, see the list at the end of Chapter 11, Argumentation-Persuasion, in The Longman Reader.
Brainstorm for topics.
Choose one topic, choose a method of development, and organize all details accordingly.
Research for appropriate evidence to support your argument. While you are researching, be sure to note all information necessary to filling out your Works Cited page for that entry.
Remember your conclusion and your Works Cited page in MLA format.
