When have you had to use evidence to help persuade a person or group of
I have actually persuade my son that school is important no matter how old you
are. How I did this was he asked me if it was so important why didn't I have to
go to school. I explained to him that I completed my school days the only thing
now for me to do is college. He wanted me to start going to college so he could
keep going to elementary school and so forth. I had to break down all the main
points as to why education is so important the older you get.
How did you know that evidence was credible and valid?
I knew it was credible and valid because of all the statistics out there and the
proof you can find. I also allowed him to speak to teachers and other educators.
He even spent a day with me at work to speak with others about their
educations and how it has helped them in their life's. I showed him graphs of
people with and without education levels. Provided him with hands on
experiences with education on something vs without education on it.
Was your personal credibility affected by the credibility of your evidence? If
yes, explain why you think it was affected. If no, explain why you think it
wasn't a factor.
I feel as if it was and wasn't. Why do I think that? Well because you do not have to
have education to be successful in life but you want to make sure you gain enough
education to where you are capable of being able to do what it is you love to do. I feel
as if you don't get an education in today's society you will not be able to make the
amount it takes to actually live out here now.
