Choose one example of governmental spending which has been or soon will be “cut back.”
Produce a page of notes, then conclude from them whether you favour or oppose the cutback. Now write an inductive essay to support your opinion.
Apply at least three techniques of persuasion.
After a quick “discovery draft,” check to see if you have left out any good points from your notes. Has writing led you to discover new points? If they are good, add them.
In further drafts, revise for conciseness, concrete language, and consistent tone.
Test your prose aloud before publishing the final version.
