Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
This persuasive essay builds on the previous research paper. Choose the same topic as you chose for the research paper, but now turn it into a persuasive essay where you have a clear stance and are trying to convince readers to adopt your opinion and/or take action (as fitting for the topic). The sources and key reasons and key data and quotes may be reused from the research paper.
The topic is based on the topic of the research paper; this was already explained in more detail in the outline assignment. If needed, please go to this assignment to review the topic.
Please upload either a Word file (.doc or .docx).
The essay builds on the research paper but should not be an exact copy of the research paper. Also, no more than 15% of your essay are allowed to be quotes!
Minimum word count: 1,400 words.
Remember that you will write for a general audience that is not convinced of your opinion. Use at least two of the sources from your research paper (and if needed new or more sources) and cite them correctly in 8th edition MLA format.
To establish yourself as a trustworthy author, make sure you present both sides of the issue and address weaknesses in the opposing opinion(s) = include opposing opinions/objections and rebuttals
Do not plagiarize (quote and cite when needed).
