Persuasive Argumentation

The dominant rhetorical strategy for your paper is persuasive argumentation. However in putting together the paper, you should also naturally incorporate compare/contrast and descriptive strategies. The final draft should be approximately 5-7 pages, double-spaced, presented in MLA documentation (Works Cited page and in-text citations) with integrated information from at least 3 sources. No first person voice (“I”) should be used in the writing.
