1. Select a topic- Choose a topic that you want to write your persuasive essay on (please do not write about abortion, marijuana, or gay marriage-make sure you select a topic that is different from your first essay “Arguing to Inquire”).

2. Research three scholarly articles (two articles must be from a research database) for your essay about the topic you selected.

4. Review the revised student essay “Is Too Much Pressure Healthy” on pg. 260. Use this as a guide to help write your essay. Although they use I in their essay, please DO NOT use I in your paper.

5. In a 2-3 page essay, write about a controversial topic that asks your readers to take action in MLA format (do not forget a work cited page).
