After reading the “Argument” chapter on pages 184-199, “Proposals” chapter on pages 208-226, and “Using Argumentative Strategies” chapter on pages 401-415, apply your knowledge to create a proposal and convince me to fund it.
Pretend I (Dr. E) am the head of a grants committee that has $1 million dollars to donate to a worthy cause. (I don’t really have the money. This is a pretend scenario, so don’t ask for any real money!) Pick a cause and draft a proposal to convince me to give the money to you. Make sure you appeal to reason, authority, and emotion (from “Using Argumentative Strategies”) to craft your argument.
Submission: Your response must be a minimum of 250 words.
