Potential or Provocative Persuasion Topics Hints: Start Brainstorming for Problems, Plans, Policies, and Concepts. These can be found from newspapers, magazines, books, the internet, and people around you. What questions would you like answered or to answer about each? Then look for answers which are Issues that have two sides. Determine some that are currently of interest to you, your classmates or the media. Choose which side you are on (and wish to defend!) and state your position clearly as a declarative sentence (an answer, not a question). Decide next if it is a Fact, Value, or Policy issue. Then choose a tentative Organizational Pattern that is consistent with that position. Now start marshalling research resources to help you clarify, describe, and defend your position. Plan to use examples, peer and/or expert opinion, reason, and statistics as your evidence.
