I have attached my proposal essay.
Please identify what your purpose for communicating with your audience (motivate, persuade, inform, or entertain) and in a minimum of 25 words state why this is your goal.For example, if your debate topic is on government regulation to monitor cyber bullying and you want to communicate with Internet Freedom Coalition, then you would state why you want to converse with this coalition? Let’s say you are sympathetic with their views, then you do not need to persuade them so why communicate? Well, perhaps you want to motivate the coalition to become politically involved and lobby Congress and Federal Communication Committee to keep the Internet free from any government regulation. Then you know that is your purpose. Please keep in mind that there is always tension with a purpose. That is, there is always some type of opposition. For example, the Internet Freedom Coalition may not want to lobby Congress or feel it is necessary, so you will communicate with the coalition motivating the coalition members why they need to be politically active.
Confused? Here is how the student exploring drug offense completed this assignment:
I am writing to William Barr, Attorney General of United States, who wants to enforce harsher penalty on drug offenders believing that longer sentences, even the death penalty, is the only way to drastically decrease drug problem in U.S. He does not believe drug abuse is an illness but a crime committed by losers, thugs, and gang members who will not stop taking drugs if there is no serious consequences from the criminal justice system. I disagree with him. I want to persuade him that drug abuse is a real illness that good citizens (moms, teachers, nurses, cousins, etc) struggle with and that throwing them in jail will not address their illness but only make them more desperate and devastated by imprisoning them and not providing them rehab.
