Ch. 12

Roberts, Ch. 12 -- Jerz: American Lit II (EL 267)

"... your basic strategy is persuasion."

This seems like such a simple, straightforward idea, that we must persuade our reader that our claim is true. However, I have found that often I find myself questioning my claim while I am writing. I know this is necessary and should be used to provide objections and then proof for why these objections don't hold up, but it often just succeeds in stopping me dead in my tracks and making me wonder if I chose the right claim.
