    Persuasive Essay
    Task: Identify a recommendation in response to the social inclusion issue topic that you have been
    working on and develop a thesis to argue for this recommendation. Outline the key arguments in an
    argument essay, supporting a central thesis, referencing relevant evidence to support each argument
    before reiterating and reinforcing the thesis through a summary of salient arguments in your
    The argument essay required here is an exposition, including the following stages:
    - Background: Brief introduction to the issue contextualising the problem
    - Thesis: States the author’s position (includes scope, stance & conclusion)
    - Arguments: Concisely communicate the rationale for the thesis through definition, explanation and
    the integration of supporting evidence
    - Thesis Reinforcement: Restates (rewords) the thesis and summarises salient supporting arguments
    The essay will be written for a specialist, academic audience and will identify a recommendation in
    response to the social inclusion issue topic (including three main arguments supporting your thesis).
    You must reference at least eight (8) sources and demonstrate the ability to synthesise information
    and views from a variety of perspectives to produce a coherent, well-supported recommendation.

    Task: The brochure will similarly outline significant issues related to your research topic, and will guide
    readers to a “call to action” recommendation. It will be written for a non-specialised non-academic
    audience and will focus on one of the recommendations and present the “solution” as an organisation
    or product to be “marketed” or “sold” to the reader.
    The brochure will be of publishing quality and include four key parts:
    -Engaging Title: concisely identifies the main idea and rhetorically “asks” or poses the
    recommendation being presented; brief description of the problem (nominalised form).
    SIBT - Macquarie University
    -Identification/Description (“Who we are”): The group or “idea” being presented is identified, defined
    and described; the organisation is defined & described.
    -Context Relevance (“What we believe”): Situates the “organisation” (i.e., the personified
    position/recommendation) within a context.
    -Engagement “Hook”: Call to action to engage readers, aligning him/her through a response invitation.

    Model of a Persuasive Essay: “The international development of penal systems”
    In the international development of penal systems, there are two opposing schools of thought. The
    first perspective supports more punitive sentencing and the increasing use of imprisonment, both as a
    means of retribution and incapacitation. The second perspective supports a powerful movement
    towards the internationalization of probation through the establishment of probation services. These
    rehabilitative, probation services are integral for a penal system founded in spiritual and moral codes,
    social reconstruction and restorative justice.
    The first argument for developing rehabilitative services is a moral, spiritual one. Historically,
    probation services in the western world began with the Church’s missionary service, seen as an
    extension of their normal work of trying to persuade sinners to reform (McWilliams, 1983, p. 68;
    Vanstone, 2004, pp. 92-94). Christians had a duty to show mercy to sinners, and charity gave this a
    practical form, but active and caring human contact was necessary to persuade “sinners” to reform.
    This kind of work was seen as the business of voluntary organisations and charities rather than
    Government. Social and spiritual rehabilitation is commendable, but the overarching goal is salvation,
    and other achievements are valued mainly as means towards this end. Evidence of achievement of the
    ultimate goal of salvation is beyond the reach of secular social science (Raynor & Robinson, 2009, p. 3).
    The second argument for developing probation services as part of the penal code stems from
    utilitarian views of social reconstruction. Under this paradigm, the offender to be rehabilitated is
    guided to become a good citizen rather than merely a good person (Garland, 1985, p. 279). The aim of
    this Utilitarian tradition is a penal system that transforms offenders into decent and useful members
    of the community by the most efficient means. This perspective also offers a clear justification for
    rehabilitative efforts. These efforts contribute to the service of the community through the availability
    of ‘decent and useful members of the community’ for the collective task of social reconstruction
    (Mannheim, 1946, p. 62).
    The third argument for offender rehabilitation focuses on the benefit to potential victims and to the
    community. Under this view, Rehabilitation is advocated on the grounds that it is better for both
    offenders and society because it can reduce further offending and victimizations (McGuire, 1995, p.
    28). This primacy accorded to public safety is described by Garland (2001) as a shift in the justification
    of rehabilitation: the emphasis moves from the benefit to the offender towards the benefit to
    potential future victims; in other words, it is for the community’s sake that rehabilitation is attempted.
    Such approaches are associated particularly with advocates of restorative justice who believe that
    reintegrative processes can help offenders to atone for or make reparation for their offences at the
    same time as helping offenders and victims to learn something of each other (Braithwaite, 1989, p. 2).
    The aim is the restoration or establishment of social bonds that both offer the offender membership
    of a community and consequently strengthen informal controls over his or her behaviour. Therefore,
    the aim of probation services is to view rehabilitation not simply as meeting offenders’ needs or
    correcting their deficits, but as harnessing and developing their strengths and assets, achieving both
    moral and secular motivations (Maruna & Lebel, 2003, p. 9).

    Rehabilitative Probation Services—What does it really offer?
    Who we are
    Rehabilitative Probationary Services is a group of community-
    centred individuals proactively working toward sustainable
    solutions for offender re-entry. RPS cooperates with law
    enforcement, policy makers and community leaders to provide a
    seamless transition for offenders to effectively re-enter the
    What we believe
    Offender re-entry is a community process…
    …and as such, members of the community should have a voice in how policies are shaped and carried
    out. History has proven that offender re-entry programs cannot succeed without the ongoing support and
    input from those most invested in the community. That is why RPS engages community members to invest
    in the policies and practices that inform offender re-entry.
    Rehabilitation is good for all…
    …even victims. One of the key arguments against probation services is the recurring emotional and
    psychological cost to the victims. RPS acknowledges the impact to victims and cooperates with community
    counsellors to provide the necessary support to guide victims through the processes of their offender’s
    Punitive Sentencing has a place…
    …but rather than being the norm we believe it should be the exception. RPS works closely with law
    enforcement and policy makers to screen suitable candidates and ensure that dangerous offenders are
    Rehabilitation is more than remediation…
    …and effective rehabilitation, like the programs we promote, focus on harnessing and developing
    offenders’ strengths and assets.
    How you can get involved (hook)…
    RPS members bring the voice of the community to the ears of decision-makers. We want you to help decide
    how offenders are reintroduced to our neighbourhoods.
