Assignment: Persuasive Essay Revision

Persuasive Essay Revision Introduction

In the Writing module, you completed an essay in which you defined a practice that could lead to enhanced success for a particular group of college students and argued for the adoption of that practice.

In this module, you will revisit that essay, expanding it to include at least 3 outside resources not already part of required reading in course, including at least 2 from the library to help illustrate and clarify the points your essay makes.

You will work with your tutors at the Enhancement Center to identify what kind of outside sources will be appropriate for your needs, and where to add source material into your essay draft.
