Write the essay:
1. Determine your stance and construct a thesis statement that will reflect the focus of your
essay. This thesis will drive your ideas.
2. Find two academic resources that support your stance.
3. Find one academic resource that counters your position.
4. Follow the writing process to construct a 3 to 5 page persuasive essay that explains the
“why” of your position and acknowledges the counter position. You must include a
Reference Page, but it does not count as one of the 3 to 5 pages.
Create the presentation:
1. Determine your stance and recognize the audience (as noted in the topic chart). Your
presentation will be focused on that particular agency, so you would want to research
that agency to educate yourself about your audience.
2. Using the resources you found in your research, construct a formal, persuasive
presentation that reviews four important points about your issue.
3. The presentation should have a variety of graphics, including a chart or a graph, and
should be visually organized in a professional manner. It should also include a
Reference Page that shows the reference citations for your topic research and your
audience research.
Write a reflection: You will answer the following questions in complete paragraphs (one
paragraph per set of questions, four paragraphs total).
1. What are the components of a successful persuasive piece and how did you implement
these components in your own project?
2. What did you learn from researching a specific audience for the PowerPoint
presentation? How did this help you to construct your project?
3. Choose one source to explain in a well-developed paragraph, including an explanation
of its relevance to your project and its credibility.
4. In a paragraph, explain how your presentation differs from, and is similar to, your
persuasive essay.
