The Final Project
Throughout this course we are examining methods of persuasion. The great issues of our day are far from being resolved, but effective

persuasion can begin to build consensus. Your Final Project requires you to tackle a current controversial issue with multiple valid

positions and use persuasion to convince your audience that your position on the issue is correct. The written portion of your Final

Project must be six to eight pages of content (not including title and reference pages) and can include multimedia, interactive video,

pictures, commercials, movie scenes, web links, etc. to bolster your opinions. Your paper should incorporate the latest methods of

persuasion to prove your points to your instructor. You are encouraged to find a topic that you feel passionate about. The list
