FC: Argumentative Writing By: Catalina and Pia

1: Argumentative Writing | In 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.

2: Argumentative Writing | Elements toward building a good persuasive essay include Establishing facts to support an argument: - clarifying relevant values for your audience (perspective) - prioritizing, editing, and/or sequencing the facts and values in importance to build the argument - forming and stating conclusions - persuading" your audience that your conclusions are based upon the agreed -upon facts and shared values - having the confidence to communicate your "persuasion" in writing.

3: Here are some strategies to complete a persuasive writing assignment: Write out the questions in your own words. Think of the questions posed in the assignment while you are reading and researching. Determine facts any sources that will help you determine their reliability (as well as for further reference) what prejudices lie in the argument or values that color the facts or the issue what you think of the author's argument | Argumentative Writing

4: - List out facts; consider their importance: prioritize, edit, sequence, discard, etc. - Ask yourself "What's missing?" - What are the "hot buttons" of the issue? - List possible emotions/emotional reactions and recognize them for later use | Argumentative Writing

5: Start writing a draft! - Start as close as possible to your reading/research - Do not concern yourself with grammar or spelling Write your first paragraph: - Introduce the topic - Inform the reader of your point of view! - Focus on three main points to develop - Establish flow from paragraph to paragraph - Keep your voice active - Stay focused on your point of view - Focus on logical arguments - Don't lapse into summary in the development--wait for the conclusion | Argumentative Writing

6: Conclusion - Summarize, then conclude, your argument - Refer to the first paragraph/opening statement as well as the main points does the conclusion restate the main ideas? - reflect the succession and importance of the arguments logically conclude their development? Edit/rewrite the first paragraph to better telegraph your development and conclusion. | Argumentative Writing

7: - Take a day or two off! - Re-read your paper with a fresh mind and a sharp pencil - Ask yourself: Does this make sense? Am I convinced? Will this convince a reader? Will they understand my values, and agree with my facts? - Edit, correct, and re-write as necessary - Check spelling and grammar! - Revise if necessary - Turn in the paper - Celebrate a job well done, with the confidence that you have done your best | Argumentative Writing
