Values Argument Purpose: to increase your skill at persuading readers to share your assessment of an issue; and to practice using qualifiers and conditions for rebuttals , as Toulmin indicated. Task: Write a persuasive essay, on an issue of your choice, in which you try to bring readers to share your assessment or evaluation of that issue. The questions that follow may help you find your topic. Note that each one basically asks, “Is this a good or a bad idea?” (You may find that this essay overlaps with the causal argument.
