W5 Assignment JC , English homework help

This week’s assignment is intended to help get you started on the persuasive essay we will be working on throughout the remainder of this course.

Part One: Topic Search

For the first part of this assignment, consider the following three questions:

  1. What issue or problem would you like to write about?
  2. Choose a side. What is your view on the issue? What is the opposing view?
  3. What specific change might fix this issue?

Then, freewrite for 10-15 minutes about the topic you have chosen. Share all of the reasons you can think of for why your problem needs to be fixed. Do not worry about grammar, spelling, or format. Do not edit. Write what comes to mind. Do not research yet. If you are stumped and cannot write what you know for 10-15 minutes, go back to #1 and start with a new topic.

Part Two: The Outline

Draft an informal outline for your upcoming persuasive paper. Do not include quotations or paraphrased material. Your outline should be built from your current knowledge of the topic. You can refine this later when you conduct your research.
