IGNORE ANYTHING ABOUT STATEMENTS OF GOALS AND CHOICES!!
Create a project designed to persuade a stakeholder to change their mind or to influence their actions on the issue. You should make intentional choices about your purpose, genre, medium, technologies, audience, tone, voice, design, content, and organization/structure for this project.

The audience you choose should be currently indifferent, uninformed, or resistant to your idea or position. While you will use the information you discovered in previous projects as a foundation for this project, you must do additional research that will allow you to craft an appropriate and persuasive argument based on your position that is tailored to the audiences expectations, background, and values. This will require more research about the issue and about the audience.

For this project, you will identify what genre, medium, form, and organization of ideas will best reach and persuade your audience to successfully reach your purpose. For example: Is your audience best reached through a formal written proposal that documents a problem and proposes a solution? Are they best reached and persuaded through a print or online magazine article that explores how the problem affects individuals like them? I will provide some options for you to guide your media and genre choices. You will want to find models of the genre and form to help you understand the conventions expected of this genre and medium. For example, if you select to write an argumentative essay for a particular magazine, you should read models in that magazine to understand the conventions and expectations of that forum and audience. Or if you write a report to an organization, you should find reports with similar audiences and purposes that could serve as models.

Please Include the following:
– Demonstrate clear purpose & Sense of audience
– Address, beliefs, values, & perspectives
– Organized around a controlling idea, thesis, or purpose
– Is the controlling idea complex enough?
– Incorporate research and cite it
– Organized in a fashion to present to a school board
