Persuasive ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ This means you will attempt to sway your audience one way or another about something. You are to convince and persuade. You may call your audience to action, such as voting or to donate blood. Your topic must be researchable. This means that you have to acquire and use three outside sources to supplement your presentation. You, yourself, are not a source.
Refute: You must refute the opposing side of your argument in your presentation. You will need to present the argument of the opposing side and then refute it, undermine it and show how it is invalid or has less worth than that for which you are arguing. Use your supporting material to refute the opposing argument. In this way, you weaken the opposing argument and strengthen yours.
