ESSAY ASSIGNMENT 5
The fifth essay is an argument/persuasion essay, similar to the ones we have read for class. The essay format is as follows:
The goal of this essay is to argue or persuade a point of view on a topic of your choosing. Consider the pieces we read for class: In Praise of the F Word, and Uncle Sam and Aunt Samantha. The topic does not have to be controversial or even well-known, but thorough, intelligent discussion is expected.
Have a rough draft prepared and printed out for peer review on Wednesday, April 6th.
*NOTE: Grading will be stricter on this essay and all following essays. A “U” for any criteria on the rubric will result in a 0 (zero) for the respective category: Structure, Style, Development, or Mechanics. Time to step up the proofreading!
