Essay #3: Creating a Rhetorically Informed Argument Assignment:  Write a 3-5 page argument that is supported by research and targets a specific  audience. Purpose:  Apply your research on a controversial issue from your Unit 2 and create a specific  argument that you can present successfully in order to persuade an audience to change its  opinion or action. Process:  1) Consider the  rhetorical situation : What is at stake? Who is affected by the issue?      What arguments are most commonly made and why? 2) Choose a particular  aspect of the issue  to focus your argument on: causes, solutions,      evaluations, an innovative new interpretation, etc.  3) Decide who your  target audience  will be. Who are you trying to convince, and what      do you want them to do (i.e. think more critically about the issue, change their      perspective, take a particular action, etc.)?
