    Learning Objectives

    We have examined how fact and opinion affect persuasive writing, so we're ready for the next step, which includes an exploration of logical fallacies, elements we want to avoid in strong argumentative writing. This includes a consideration of the words we select to persuade our audience.

    By the end of this week, you will:

    • review logical fallacies, exploring how they impact persuasive writing
    • determine appropriate language that strengthens argumentative writing
    • post to blog
