Transcript of Argumentative vs. Persuasive

How can we tell the difference?
Argumentative vs. Persuasive
Argumentative writing states a claim or claims that showcases the author's point of view as well as what the opposition will state; the author will showcase why his or her viewpoint is correct while also showcasing the counterpoint (the other side). In the end, the author will still prove why he or she is RIGHT.
Information from: http://www.smekenseducation.com/argumentative-v-persuasive-writing.html
A debate is a discussion between people in which they express different opinions about something.
Think of argumentative writing as a debate.
In the case of essay writing, YOU the writer are having a debate in your essay, however you always back up your claim by showcasing why the other side is WRONG
You can also think of your writing in the sense of you being Perry Mason a famous defense attorney who in his closing arguments has to state what the prosecution stated and why his defense is right.
This writing is meant to get a reader to agree with your point of view; this writing usually blends facts with emotions based on a personal conviction.
This is the writing you used to do for MOCKS. You also may be asked to write like this when your teacher wants just an opinion on a certain topic with no evidence from a text source. Usually the information comes from your personal experience.
The goal is to get the reader to acknowledge that your side is valid and deserves consideration as another point of view.
Research is a part of this genre of writing.
Remember you are presenting multiple perspectives, but you are clearly for one side.
This writing is intended to be personal, passionate, and emotional.
An example could be trying to persuade a student to work harder in class.
Some information was used from this website.
Remember this type of writing? You will not have to do that this year on the end of the year assessment known as Georgia Milestones. You will either do argumentative or expository writing that builds evidence from a text.
