Question description



Strategies for Persuasion Using Compare and
Contrast


In Chapter 6 of the text, you
learned about different types of personal writing, including descriptive essays
and narrative essays. You also were able to use these techniques in the essay
you wrote during Week Two. For this week’s assignment, you will be writing a
comparison/contrast essay on the differences and similarities between a
narrative essay and a descriptive essay, ending with a persuasive statement on
which style of essay you believe is superior to the other, based on the examples
you selected. For more information on how to write a persuasive statement,
please reference Chapter 7 of your text.

Choose one story from the
Narrative Essay list located in the Week Two Required Readings section and one
story from the Descriptive Essay list. After reading, identify key elements such
as the author’s purpose for writing the narrative, the intended audience, and
impact on the reader. Compare and contrast how each essay addresses these
elements. Which essay is more appealing and why? Keep in mind there is no right
or wrong choice here. You are using your reading and critical thinking skills to
explain your choice.

Your initial post must be 200 to 300 words in length
and posted by Day 3. Support your claims with examples from the required
material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
Respond to at least two of your classmates by giving specific reasons and/or
examples from the text why you agree or disagree with their conclusion. Response
posts must be 125 to 200 words in length and posted by Day 7. If you have
questions about how to participate in discussions, consult “About Discussions”
under the Course Home menu. You are not required to support your claims with
additional scholarly materials; however, should you decide to use additional
sources, make sure you properly cite any references.
