The following Course Outcome is assessed in this assignment:
GB512-1: Prepare documents using industry conventions and Standard English mechanics.
You practiced with persuasive email concepts prior to preparing this assignment. For this first writing assignment, you will write a persuasive email of 500–750 words to the author of an article you find interesting in one of these publications: The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, or The Washington Post. The article must have been published within the last 14 days.
You may select an article that you agree with, disagree with, or a combination of both. In your persuasive response, including what you liked about the article, what you disliked, what you believe should have been added, or perhaps what should not be in the article at all.
As you prepare your email, consider the audience, purpose, form, and content. Cite passages from the article in your response following the current APA format for in-text citations. Include at least two additional references published within the last year that support your points. Provide a references page that includes at least three references — the article you are responding to, and the two supporting references.
Peer-reviewed academic articles, articles published in journals, textbooks, and library resources in the Purdue University Global library databases are examples of high-quality resources. Note: Wikipedia, Investopedia, blogs, etc., are not considered reliable resources for this research.
