After reviewing the Learning Activities, begin developing ideas for an argument for change in your community or workplace and sharing them on the Discussion Board. You are welcome to share several different ideas in order to receive feedback on the ones that are stronger. Then, respond in at least two well-developed paragraphs to the following questions:

  • Create three research questions about your selected topic and develop a potential thesis statement. Then, identify the type of claim your thesis represents (proposal, ethical, value, etc.) and explain how you could use the appeals of logos, ethos, and pathos to make an argument for change.
  • Have you ever tried to make this argument to friends or colleagues before? If so, how successful or unsuccessful was your argument? If not, what do you think you would need to do to persuade friends or colleagues to agree with your argument?
