Throughout this course we are examining methods of persuasion. The great issues of our day are far from being resolved, but effective persuasion can begin to build consensus. Your final project requires you to tackle a current, controversial issue and use persuasion to convince your audience that your position(s) on the issue is (are) correct. Your final paper must be six- to eight-pages of content (exclusive of the APA title and reference pages), and you can include multi-media, interactive video, pictures, commercials, movie scenes, web links, etc. to bolster your opinion(s). Your paper should incorporate the latest methods of persuasion in the hopes of proving your point to your instructor.
