Question description

Publish a petition on

Tips: * Contextualize the problem. Background information will be needed, so make sure to provide it (i.e. who, what, when, where). Be very specific.

* The petition must have a specific recipient, so do your research prior to publishing your work. Ask yourself: who can help you with your request?

* Be respectful and persuasive. Your objective is to get signatures that can lead to a change, so make sure you are not excluding or insulting audiences. Avoid aggressive, offensive language.

* Do research. Throughout your petition, I would like you to use three credible sources: one source should be a credible media article (preferably from a newspaper or magazine), one source should be a scholarly article (published in a scholarly journal), and one source should be a strong visual (please refer to the slideshow I created on Visual Arguments). Though petitions generally don’t have a Works Cited page, I would like you to still provide one when you submit this assignment.

* Your petition should be 4-6 pages. Petitions don’t follow MLA rules; they look more like online newspaper/magazine articles with a title, \a picture (which is recommended but not required), and the article itself. For this assignment, you don’t have to follow the MLA format.

* Don’t forget that to complete this assignment you must do two things: submit your petition in the Assignment page I have opened on Canvas and copy/paste the URL of your published petition at the very bottom of the petition you’re submitting in the Assignment page. I will follow that link to look at your published work and to possibly sign your petition!

Purpose: the objective of this assignment is to practice persuasive writing, which include the elements of logos, pathos and ethos as well as practice writing a proposal.

Topic: According to Google dictionary, petitions are “a formal written request, typically one signed by many people, appealing to authority with respect to a particular cause.” In order for a petition to be strong, the writing must have strong logos (reason, logic and factual information), convincing ethos (credible sources, ethical ideas, unbiased and unflawed writing) and moving pathos (emotional connection to the writing).

Writing Task: First, open up at account. Then, browse through some of the trending petitions on the website. There are thousands already published, so please go through a few to get a good idea of what will be expected. Since this website is open to everyone, you will find both strongly and weakly written petitions. Read both to give yourself an idea of what you should aim for and what you should try to avoid. Follow the steps on the website to publish your petition (there are 4 steps total). After publishing your petition, I want you to copy/paste the URL at the bottom of your essay
I have created my own petition on my take of saving pit bulls since I care about them so much.

Why we should stop the ban on pit bulls

When one sees a pit bull what is the first thing that crosses his/her mind? For some, they
develop the feeling of fear and for the majority, they feel like it is just friends misunderstood by
the law. Have the thought of trying to consider the understanding of the actual reality of the pit
bull, is it really a vicious breed? Or is the breed of pets misunderstood due to the continuous debate
on the myths and misconceptions associated with them that destroys their public figure? Have you
ever come to think of the reason the dogs are considered viscous is actually is their owner’s? Many
people have given speculation on why these precious animals should be banned and one of the
major basis is in the aspect of them being viscous which a threat to public safety is. For those who
try to propose that pit-bull is loving and safe to live with humans only suffer negative publicity
from the media and the myth supporters while actually, the situation is much different in the reality.

There have been cases reported to the authority of individuals pets being attacked and killed
by pit-bulls and such nature of cases tend to demonstrate the viscous nature of pit bulls. It is true
to consider the fact that pit bulls have developed levels of loyalty and are so loving to their owners
is very true. One might think of a scenario when one thinks that one has trespassed his/her territory,
in most cases, the implications are severe to the trespassers. Understanding the reason behind why
