A presentation on how to create persuasive claims


This is a PDF of a Powerpoint I created to help student to think about various ways of making persuasive claims. I compare and constrast several different ways of making a single claim (i.e., "Eating garlic is good for you."). I ask students to think about why some claims seem more persuasive than others. 

You could use this presentation in a discussion of how to analyze the arguments of others. That is, how do the authors you read "back up" or contextualize their own claims? You could also use it ahead of a rough draft/writing workshop so that peer reviewers know what to look for in the work of their peers.
