Persuasive Writing

Austin McCoy

Example from speech

Students All around the nation suffer from stress and anxiety because of school. Shortening school hours by making electives optional will minimize the amount of stress and anxiety that students experience during school.


This is only the introduction but it has reasoning of persuading an audience to agree with something or change something.

Example from Pechakucha

  1. If people were to see or hear the other side of the story, which is the physical evidence, then they wouldn't be siding with the officers so easily or suddenly. Everyone always thinks that it's the victim’s fault in these cases. That's because the things you hear from the news or the things you see on social media or in the newspaper are one sided.


This example of persuasive writing is trying to convince the audience to look at the topic in a different way.
