5C - Writing prompt for gun attitudes article, due Thursday, November 20
You are writing a guest article for an American high school newspaper about the difference in gun attitudes between America and Austria. You have to be somewhat objective, but you may express your own opinion. In your article,
· Explain the legal uses of guns in Austria
· Compare statistics of gun deaths in the United States and Austria
· Express how gun behaviour influences European perception of the U.S.
HINTS: Make sure you give your article an interesting title
Your introduction should indicate what the article is about, but it should also build reader interest.
Use a new paragraph for each bulletpoint
Use fitting examples (are they relevant and to the point?)
Conclusion should sum up your argument
Rhetorical questions build interest
Encourage reader to continue reading, either through direct address or more indirect methods
