Question description

Now it is your turn to use the new rhetorical skills you have used. Because of the declining economy, fewer jobs are available. As a result, thousands of people in your area have recently become homeless through no fault of their own. Imagine that a large group of people without homes has set up a temporary camp near your house.

Many people who live in your community are furious about this. They want the government and police to send these people away using legislation, intimidation, or force. Others support allowing those without homes to stay and even suggest helping them by giving supplies and facilities.

Everyone has been invited to the town hall for a meeting to resolve this issue. People who wish to speak must submit a proposal outlining what they intend to say. The town council will select five speakers from each side of the debate to present their arguments at the meeting. You feel strongly about this issue, so you decide to submit a proposal.

To prepare your proposal, you must do the following:

  1. Decide which side of the issue you support and think carefully about why. With respect to all viewpoints and using respectful, thoughtful language, take a stand. Think carefully about your reasons. Make sure your judgment of the situation is based on adequate knowledge of the facts.
  2. Write a carefully worded, arguable claim identifying your thesis and give two reasons why it is correct. Then add facts and other details to support your reasons.
  3. To help you respond to counterclaims the other side might make, list facts that do not support your reasons and tell how you will respond to them.
  4. Write a strong conclusion that restates your thesis in a memorable way.
  5. Complete this proposal form by filling in each box with a complete sentence.
  6. Review the council's selection criteria (grading rubric) to be sure your proposal scores highly.
Don't worry about the proposal form ill fill that out
