Persuasive Letter

Good morning,

You had homework last night to reflect on the Socratic seminar we had yesterday. Please turn that in now.

Today I will explain your next process prompt and we will begin to do some research to refine your topic.

What is an issue in your community that people disagree about? Write a persuasive letter discussing your point of view on a local community issue. Prove your case by citing evidence, addressing opposing viewpoints, and providing counterarguments.

  • Use a business letter format
  • 2-3 Page Letter
  • Works cited page should include all relevant sources that you read for this assignment.
  • We will mail your letter to the appropriate person

To simplify your search for an issue I have consolidated most of our major local news sources here.
