Brainstorm for 3 potential persuasive topics. (See your list of 20 topics)
The topics must have two distinct and opposing arguments. The topics must have clear counter arguments.
For example, there are two distinct and opposing opinions about abortion or death penalty laws. That means that kind of topic will work for this assignment.
AVOID topics for which there are subjective arguments and/or that describe, for instance, “the benefits of exercise”. It is unlikely that there is a logical argument against those benefits.
There must be at least 2 distinct positions.
Create 3 potential three point thesis statements for those persuasive topics.
Review the 3 Point Thesis Statement Powerpoint.
Include ONE potential counter argument for each topic
