For the Advocacy Project, you will be writing a paper that you might give at an undergraduate conference. In preparation, you must analyze several aspects of your rhetorical situation so that you have a better grasp of your audience and the kind of appeals you want to make to them.
1. Read the full AP Prompt, paying particular attention to the section on your audience. List at least 10 beliefs or values that you think they may have in common. As college students, what do they care about? As young adults? Why will your ideas appeal to them?
2. Choose 3 potential solutions for the problem that you outlined in your CP. Write 2-3 sentences about each solution, explaining its benefits and considerations.
3. Based on what you know about your genre, audience, and purpose, which solution do you think will be most effective? Write a paragraph (4-6 sentences) that goes more into depth about this particular solution. What do you know about the costs (relating to money, time, people, etc.)? What problems do you foresee with helping your audience buy in to your solution? Because your audience is diverse, how will you appeal to one group without alienating another? What more do you need to know about your topic, about your audience, or about argumentation so that you can write a paper that this audience will find both interesting and convincing?
AP project requirement
This draft should be approximately 1000 words, and include your introduction paragraph and some of your first body paragraphs (probably the ones where you outline your problem).
We will not be doing peer review for this draft. Instead, I will be giving you comments and tips to consider as you complete your paper. Knowing that this is the only draft I will read in its entirety, please give your best effort to these 1000 words so that you can get the most useful feedback from me. You will do peer review for AP draft 2.
I will upload my last CP project and this AP project prompt as a reference for you. Basicly this AP project is required you to read my CP project first and then write a paper by following the prompt.
