Since Text 1 for Project 3, the written genre, is persuasive, you are going to be making an argument in that first text.

This chapter outlines different strategies that writers can use to make effective arguments.

- Who is your audience and what is the particular stance you are taking in your persuasive text?
- For each of the 3 strategies, answer the following questions:
- What is the strategy that you might incorporate?
- In 2-3 sentences, how do you understand what this strategy includes?
