Week 4 D04 Which Persuasive Approach Is Best Consider a controversial issue that is of great importance to you such as K12 education Some believe that home schooling offers more a diverse and safer option Others favor privatization in the hopes that a particular set of values can be instilled in students and that those who are the best can distinguish themselves from the rest Yet others believe that public education is the best option for shared values and broadbased socioeconomic uplift The arguments are more complex but each position can be presented as a real world exercise in persuasion Or you could choose gun control the privatization of military operations overseas a medical intervention or drug an expansion of public health care to citizens younger than 65 university sports programs GtC Identify two key audiences What different persuasive approaches would you use on these audiences Should your approach differ If so why If not why not RESPONSE 1 Audience 1 NRAPro Guns Do you want to protect your family Do you want to sleep at night peacefully Do you want to ensure NO ONE including Big Brother Government will tell you what to do or comply with All of these things can be achieved legally by owning a firearm How many times have you heard or read about a mugging or someone breaking into a house Too many times I am sure Take matters into your own hand enroll in a shooting course get yourself a beautiful Sig Sauer 9mm pistol and for the upmost in security obtain a concealed weapons permit but most importantly get a secure box to lock up your weapon to ensure your little ones don39t get into it Armed literally and figuratively with these things I can without a doubt say that you will be protected all the way from a mugging to the far extremes of the ATF taking down the Branch Dividian Compound in Waco Texas 1995 Audience2 Antiguns How many times have you heard or read about some child from as old as a teenager to as young as a toddler killing themselves because of negligence of firearms in the home How many people have died due to a misunderstanding which escalated to a death And finallyhow many more times do we have to watch in horror of a school or university which was the victim of rage for whatever reason and took the issue all the way to a killing spree If there were no guns NONE of these tragedies would happen Guns are the 1 killers of young people under the age of 18 this fact is the biggest persuader due to it not having to actually be true These weapons need to be gone completely from our society so I don39t have to worry about my safety or my families safety Gun control to me is a very bipolar issue I don39t think there are very many who walk down the middle and say they don39t have an opinion either way It almost is broken down as well with the same issue of politics You can almost say to someonedo you like guns Well then you must be a republican But these two audiences are how I would attack both to get my point across to persuade either party to mysMe RESPONSE 2 I chose to look at gun control because the key audiences are easy to spot One audience would be progun and the other would be anti gun If I were an advocate for guns then I would use a 39fact39 persuasion approach when speaking to those who are already pro gun The speech would solidify the connections that the audience has already made such as guns equal protection and safety However if I were an advocate for guns speaking to the antigun audience then I would use the value approach The antigun audience probably views guns as bad so I would try to persuade them into seeing guns as good Since the audiences have completely different views of guns then the approach will need to be different as well When people do not think that guns are good then they cannot be approached with the same method of connecting guns to protection First they need to be persuaded that guns are good Then a good quality like protection can be brought forth The antigun audience will not be persuaded by the protection aspect because they can argue that people would not need protection if no one had a gun Similarly the progun group does not need to be told that guns are good because they already believe so RESPONSE 3 I would choice for grade k12 to talk about how to prevent child molestation It is every parents worst nightmare but it can be avoided id the child is taught some basics that can start at an early age Children are so trusting because they are innocent and do not know or comprehend evil intentions of others This makes them vulnerable to child molesters I would start by saying here tips to stay safe lScream Don39t be afraid to scream if you are approached by someone you don39t know and you are afraid 2Let someone know where you are at all times Check in frequently and be consistent with your times 3 Never let anyone touch your body around your private parts If they do tell your parents teachers or some adult While talking to adults 1 Teach your children to not be afraid to scream for help If a stranger approaches you or tries to harm you sexually scream for help immediately 2You as a parent should know where your child is at all times A child molester is less likely to bother a child whom they can see is carefully observed 3Use appropriate terms for body parts when the child is old enough Remind them frequently not to allow anyone to touch them in their private parts This is just a few approaches as how I would address the two It is basically the same but reinforced differently RESPONSE 4 Identify two key audiences What different persuasive approaches would you use on these audiences Should your approach differ If so why If not why not Hello Dr Bush and class l39d choose the topic of privatizing military operations overseas The first objective is to determine the key audiences who I believe are government officials who both for and oppose the idea for they are the politicians that approve funding for the military and contractors l39m against military contractors performing operations overseas My persuasive approach wouldn39t change in this situation because my view will hopefully enforce the beliefs of others and change the minds of the opposition It is because they all share the same background in their profession that I should not differ in my approach My approach for each party is to stress the reality of privatization costing the taxpayers more in the end Our military is held to a very high standard of morals and ethics The warriors code is typically not found among contractors and if so it39s still not to the same standard Why are contractors there in the first place It39s about money and the average contractor makes 34 times more than the average service member It39s also more difficult to protect contractors because many are unarmed They39re actions are reflective of our nation Over recent years contractors are victim of abductions and become political pawns of war which ultimately cost taxpayer more money and lives when rescue missions occur They aren39t trained to the same standard as our service members and because of that more are needed in support roles With the increase of the military contractor well trained service members leave the military to provide more monetarin speaking for their families serving in similar roles in the private sector A Special Operations Soldier makes a variable amount of pay while on a deployment to war front depending on rank earning on the average of 80 thousand dollars but in the private sector the Soldier can make up to 250 thousand a year Where does the money come to train the soldier to pay the privateer or to pay to train the new soldier to replace the experienced veteran
