Transcript

In this video, you will add three slides to your presentation that each include a statement supporting your argument.

Providing strong points to support your position on the issue is an important step in making a persuasive argument.

Later on in the lesson, you will research the issue and support the points you made with evidence that you find.

For example, it’s one thing to argue that the voting age should be lowered.

But if you can provide strong reasons why it should be lowered, with evidence to back your reasons up, more people might come around to your point of view.

To begin, add three slides to your presentation.

Next, think of three points that will support your argument.

Choose points that have a strong possibility of persuading others to agree with your position if you use them.

If you wanted to convince people that tablets are preferable to textbooks in the classroom, for instance, you could state that tablets lower the amount of paper teachers have to print for handouts, helping to save money and the environment.

If you can’t think of three points right away, take a few minutes to discuss the topic with your teacher or classmates to get their view on the issue.

You could also read about the topic online.

Type one point on each slide in a complete sentence.

Now, it’s your turn: Create three slides with points to support your argument, And format the text.
