In this assignment, you will have an opportunity to evaluate the strategies other writers use to write persuasive essays.

CheckPoint: Brainstorming Techniques

In traditional brainstorming, individuals or groups of people compile ideas on a topic but do not evaluate or organize the ideas presented. In contrast, mind-mapping (also called concept mapping) visually places the thoughts into categories.

Discussion Question 1

Writing a topic sentence is similar to writing a thesis sentence but on a smaller scale. Whereas, the thesis statement conveys the main idea of the entire paper, a topic sentence conveys the main idea of a single paragraph. Having a topic sentence in each paragraph helps to ensure unification of the ideas in the paragraph. Because any sentence that does not pertain to the topic sentence should not be included, a topic sentence automatically unifies the paragraph.

• Due Date: Day 2 [Main] forum

• Create an appropriate topic sentence for the following subject: Tips for Job Hunting in Today’s Market.

• Write a complete paragraph of approximately five sentences (your topic sentence for the subject Tips for Job Hunting in Today’s Market and approximately four supporting sentences). Identify the topic sentence of your paragraph in one of the following ways:

o Type the topic sentence in a different colored font (other than black).

o Put asterisks * at the beginning and end of your topic sentence *.

• Respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts by building on his or her paragraph. Then, identify the topic sentence of your response either by using a colored font or by adding asterisks.

3. Discussion Question 2

• Due Date: Day 4 [Main] forum

• Post your response to this question: How can you treat the subject of your essay objectively while still trying to persuade readers of your point of view?

Course Syllabus Page 12 COM 120

COM 120 Effective Persuasive Writing

A thesis statement should be created for every academic paper you write. Often appearing at the end of a paper’s introduction, the thesis informs readers in a concise manner regarding your intention in writing the paper. The thesis statement should consist of one declarative sentence that summarizes the main idea of the essay in 25 or fewer words.

• Due Date: Day 5 [Individual] forum

• Create four appropriate thesis statements for your Persuasive Essay topic by taking different positions on the subject. Indicate which thesis statement you will use for your essay. If you elect to use a topic for your paper that is not on the list, the topic must be approved by your instructor.

COM 120 Week 4 CheckPoint: Paragraphs New

CheckPoint: Paragraphs

Often, writers use more than one type of supporting paragraph to develop an essay. The type of supporting paragraph depends on the type of thesis statement the writer has chosen. For example, an argument might be supported by an example or cause/effect, and a personal experience might be supported by details.

In this CheckPoint, you will determine the kinds of supporting paragraphs that are best suited for your thesis statement.

• Due Date: Day 3 [Individual] forum

• Post your response to these questions: What is your thesis statement? What kinds of supporting paragraphs (examples, details, definitions, analysis, division and classification, process analysis, comparison/contrast, cause/effect) will be appropriate to support this thesis for your Persuasive Essay? Explain your answer
