Look at your list of reasons for or against students wearing uniforms at school. Next to each reason write an F if it is a fact or an O if it is an opinion.
Whittle down the list by getting rid of the points/opinions about student uniforms which are “weak” by nature. Weak by nature means that they are nothing more than personal opinion, or cannot be backed up with strong, factual reasoning. Things like “the uniforms are ugly,” is not a good argument.

Homework: Compose at least three sound arguments to substantiate your position on your persuasive topic. You must have at least one example of logos and pathos.
