In persuasive or argumentative writing, we try to convince others to agree with our facts, share our values, accept our argument and conclusions, and adopt our way of thinking. The Persuasive assignment is to answer the question, “Who are better communicators, men or women”? For the sake of this exercise in Persuasive Arguments, you must choose one or the other!
The paper should include:
A Title page
An Abstract (a brief summary of the paper). Start by giving the assignment, double space, then the question given to you to answer (in bold or italics).
The Persuasive essay, including a summary or conclusion which indicates your comments or opinion on the essay you are presenting.
The Persuasive assignment should be as thorough as possible. I expect the paper to be at least 4 – 5 pages. This includes a cover or title page, the body (2-3 pages, including the abstract and summary), plus a bibliography.
The Assignment is due November 13th!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!! Papers may be submitted any time prior to the due date.
Your paper should be typewritten, double-spaced, and follow standard report writing procedures. Just like in the business world, spelling, grammar, and the general appearance of the paper count. Ask your instructor if you have any questions about the format of the paper.
