Lesson 1: Information is Everywhere


Humans cannot live without information. In fact some of people consider information as
one of their daily medicines. It is important to gather information because it can be used as an
educational tool for youth. Also, it helps everyone to develop an open and critical mind.
Gathering information helps everyone to learn something new every day too. Mary Ann Allison
once quoted, “Accurate information is a key part of motivation.”

What you will do?

LAS #1

Lesson 2: Parts and Features of Persuasive Texts

A persuasive text is any text where the main purpose is to present a point of view and
seeks to persuade the reader. It can be in a form of an argument, exposition, discussion, review
or even an advertisement.

What you will do?

LAS #2
Learning Competency/ies: Identify the parts and features of persuasive texts EN10WC-lb-
12.1

Concept Notes:

The features of a persuasive text are divided into three:


 purpose
 structure
 language

The purpose of persuasive texts is to argue a point of view in order to convince the reader.
This implies that the text is written to convince a particular audience.

The structure of persuasive texts pertains to the introduction, the argument, and the
conclusion.
 Introduction- contains the subject;
 Argument/s- enumerate/s the factual and logical reason
 Conclusion- suggests an action or solution to the audience.

The language features of persuasive texts include tenses, connectors/ transition words, and
emotive language.

 Present Tense- this is the uniformed tense used in persuasive texts, but past and future
tenses could still be used when the speaker relates or states an instance at some point in
1
0
Diocese of Imus Catholic Educational System, Inc
Office of the Superintendent of Diocesan Schools
St. Jude Parish School, Governor’s Drive
Trece Martires City Cavite

the past or to address the future.

 Connectors or Transition Words- used to link one fact, opinion or idea to the other.
Examples of connectors are conjunctions like because, while, on the other hand, for
example, such as, whereas, thus, or therefore among others.

 Emotive language- The use of powerful language and strong adjectives are helpful to
the text for it to become persuasive. Some examples of these are the following:
 “I firmly believe…”
 “We must…”
 “Come, join me…”

 Rhetorical Questions- These are questions that require no answer, but implies its own
answer. These are often asked for emphasis or effect. Rhetorical questions have three
forms:

a. structured as interrogative sentence, but actually means as statement of


negative assertion.
Example: “Did the government ever take action?”- This implies that the
government has not taken action.
b. sarcasm in context
Example: “Illegal drugs destroy lives. Who knows?” – This implies assertion of
an obvious or evident fact.
c. metaphor
Example: “Who can cure this disease?” – Disease here pertains to the issues
faced by the society which needs to be addressed or cured.

 Counterarguments from another point of view- These are possible objections


against your main argument.
 Facts and Opinions- Facts are pieces of information or evidence that are certain and
specific. Opinions, on the other hand, are views and opinions about something which
can be based on facts or personal knowledge.

Example:

Below is the excerpt of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. As you read the passage, try
to analyse the structure, language and purpose used.

“The Gettysburg Address”


by Abraham Lincoln
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation,
conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are
engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can
long endure.
We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field,

Invited to speak at the consecration of a memorial honoring the dead at Gettysburg,


Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most well-known speeches in American history. While
the speech is extremely short—just 267 words—Lincoln used the opportunity both to honor
the sacrifice of the soldiers and to remind American citizens of the necessity of continuing to
fight the Civil War. The Gettysburg Address stands as a masterpiece of persuasive rhetoric.

Exercise:

Below is the excerpt of Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream”. Read the text below and
answer the questions that follow.

Excerpt from “I Have a Dream”


by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons
of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the
1
heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. 2
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be
judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.

Concept Notes:

Opinion – it is a person’s belief or stand on a certain issue.


Assertion – it is an insistent and positive affirming, maintaining, or defending.

Things to Remember in Formulating a Logical Opinion or Assertion

 Make sure that you understand the issue. You can never formulate a well-founded
opinion if you do not understand the topic you are giving an opinion about.

 Identify the details or evidence that will support your opinion. Logical opinions are
more than how you feel about the issue. It is more of how you critically look at the issue.
 Make sure to consider opinions that are different from yours. It is important to look
at the different perspectives about the issue at hand. In this way, you can evaluate the
reasonability of your own opinion.

 Make sure that you do not commit fallacies in proving your opinion. Common
fallacies include hasty generalization, slippery slope, post hoc, false dichotomy, etc.

 Keep a logical structure. However plausible your opinion is, if it is not presented in a
clean manner, it will not be as effective as it should be. Give your opinion directly. Be
concise yet accurate.

 The following are phrases you may use in formulating opinions:


 I believe…
 Base on ___________, I think that…
 I agree…/I disagree…

Examples:
Below are example statements of opinions:
 I agree that a change is needed.
 Based on the current law which needs to be changed, I think that it will be a bit
hard to implement.
 I disagree that some critics have called the movie a masterpiece.
 I believe this house is too big for one person.

Directions: Read about the given issue below and give your own opinion about it. Consider the
given ideas in formulating a logical opinion or assertion. Your opinion must be composed of at

Bishop Reynaldo Evangelista of the Diocese of Imus says all parish priests are putting in
place all necessary precautionary measures in their churches to protect mass-goers once
Cavite is under MGCQ.

CAVITE, Philippines – Churches in Cavite have begun preparations for the resumption of
public masses in over a week’s time, should the province be placed under modified
general community quarantine (MGCQ) starting June 16.

Bishop Reynaldo Evangelista of the Diocese of Imus said in an interview that parish
priests in Cavite cities and towns have put in place precautionary measures in place
following the guidelines set by the government’s coronavirus task force.

“All the parish priests in 82 parishes in 7 cities and 16 towns of Cavite are putting
markings on all benches, sanitizers, alcohol, and foot bath at the 0 entrance of the church,
thermal scanners – same as other gadgets in IATF protocols,” Evangelista said.

Cavite has a population of 3.67 million based on the 2015 census. In 2010, it had the
second largest Catholic population in the country, after Cebu. (MAP: Catholicism in the
Philippines)

Churches in areas under MGCQ are allowed to hold mass services at 50% seating
capacity.

Ushers and lay people will help ensure that mass attendees observe social distancing and
other rules inside and outside the church.
The Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has suggested adding more
schedules to keep churches from getting too crowded. Anticipated masses will start at
12:00 noon of Saturdays for this purpose.

Aside from physical distancing and mandatory wearing of masks, communion will be
given to a mass attendees’ hand instead of placing it in the latter’s mouth.

Each church in the province has a different way of applying the physical distancing
requirement on the pews. Some have seats are numbered to match the numbers of people
who would be allowed in, while other churches are putting up barriers between seats.

Churches will impose one-way movement of people heading to the entrance and the exit
to avoid people bumping into each other.
