Writing Task: You will choose one controversial, local issue, to write about in a six-eight page, research-based, persuasive essay. In addition to devising an arguable claim, you will convince your readers (including myself) to take some type of action (this is where the “proposal” aspect comes into play). It is vital to choose a subject that you find interesting, but keep an open mind while you’re doing your research. To build an effective argument, you need to present the best positions, which support your ideas as well as demonstrate why the best positions against your ideas (the counter argument) are insufficient.
