First Draft : by Feb 11 !
essay by : Feb 16 .
For this essay you will write about something important to you in an attempt to persuade your reader to consider the importance of this thing.
Further explanation: Choose a practice OR experience OR way of being OR way of thinking that is really important to you (Examples, but NOT limited to: a specific sport, recycling, a religious belief, meditation, a travel experience, eating healthy, hiking, being positive, art, science, technology, reading, a job, volunteer work, et…).Explain to your readers (myself and your peers) why this is important to you through a personal, vivid example. Let your readers into your experience.
Finally, you want to persuade your readers to consider adopting this practice/way of thinking/ way of being into their own lives. You want your reader to consider its benefit(s). In order to do this, you will want to use persuasive language and techniques, such as ethos, pathos, logos. And in order to be effectively persuasive you will need to use one source to support your point and overall argument. This could be something you read in a book or magazine or an online article that you read from a reliable/credible source like The New York Times or The New Yorker and the likes (not a random person’s blog).
You can and should use the pronoun “I,” just to be clear! This is about you!
