Alternative Assignment

If you’ve been told to read this, I’ve put you on an alternative assignment for the Argument & Persuasion Video. I want you to write an essay that incorporates images and video (both of which you’ll embed). You’ll write this essay on your WordPress blog you created for source logs earlier this year. Your topic will be this:

Choose a campaign meant to persuade teens: texting and driving, not cheating in school, etc. Discuss what you see as the reasons for the behavior, the approach that the campaign takes in trying to persuade teens, how effective you think the campaign is, and why. 

The images and video should help illustrate your points, either as specific examples, or simply to add interest. In your text, you should both cite evidence for your claims and, when possible, link to them.
