Animal Cruelty Research Article (Source for Argumentative/Persuasive Essay) Graphic Content*

Students need LEGITIMATE AUTHENTIC SOURCES to support their thesis in essays and research reports. Especially for argumentative and persuasive essays that focus on emotional and intellectual appeal. Many topics include issues such as "animal cruelty" and "climate change". This is an original article written by a blogger in an Animal Cruelty Magazine My-Pet-Story.com that I own the copyrights to. Critical literacy along with essay writing involves asking questions and challenging the status quo, and leads students to look at issues of power and justice in society. Researching and analyzing secondary sources empowers students by enabling them to formulate strong arguments and speak out about issues that strongly affect them. To develop their media literacy skills, students should have opportunities to view, analyse, and discuss a wide variety of media texts and relate them to their own experience. Teachers should make students aware that images, print materials, music, or video clips used in connection with tasks and assignments may be subject to copyright, and the appropriate releases should be obtained prior to use. This applies to items downloaded from the Internet as well and sources should be cited at all times.
