Question Description

Persuasive Rubric

Option #1: Fallacies in the Media’s Spotlight

Identify and research a person in the media's spotlight who has used a specific logical fallacy. Please be sure the thesis statement includes the logical fallacy you discuss in your paper, the person who used it, and a brief look at the examples from your paper showing how the fallacy was used. Use a persuasive tone throughout to encourage your chosen audience to accept your thesis statement. Detailing the fallacy examples and explaining how they relate to your chosen fallacy is a strong persuasive method for the body paragraphs. Strive to provide at least three examples (one for each body paragraph) where the person used the fallacy.

Sample Thesis Statement: “Kim Kardashian used the Post Hoc Fallacy when (add example 1), (add example 2), and (add example 3).

Option #2: Dear Editor:

Select a problem in your community or your school that you feel passionately about (students talking on cell phones in the classroom, the need for more recreational centers in your city, etc.) and write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. (For tips on writing a strong opinion letter, visit http://www.ccmc.org/node/16090)

You do not need to format this assignment like a formal business letter, but do start your letter with the phrase “Dear Editor:”

In the body of your letter, explain the problem (suggested for body paragraph 1), express your views on it such as the potentially negative effects (suggested for body paragraph 2), and then offer a solution to it (suggested for body paragraph 3). In order to effectively persuade your audience—the newspaper’s readers—to agree with you and to act on your solution, you will need to fully understand the problem and understand your audience. In addition, you will need to be able to describe the problem detail, to clearly explain your position on it using a persuasive tone, and to provide strong, concrete examples to back up your claims.

Sample Thesis Statement: “Valley Community College has (add problem), which (add your stance/potentially negative impacts); therefore, (add solution).

The guidelines and requirements for this assignment are as follows:

Remember to apply the concepts you're learning in the course, including elements of grammar, punctuation, thesis development, and other skills.

Underline your thesis statement.

I am not concerned about quality, but it is very important that there is no plagiarism.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
