Basically, when you write a persuasive essay you should have at the least 5 paragraphs. An introduction, 3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion, in that order. Intro: The i…ntroduction should include the 5 w's (who what ,where, when, and why) as well as a hook. A Hook is used to get the attention of your readers and to get them thinking. You can use a short anecdote, a quote, statistics, a question or a scenario. Try not to make the introduction too long, as it can deter readers. Body Paragraphs (3): Typically, there are 3 body paragraphs in a persuasive essay, though more can be added. For each paragraph have an argument or convincing reason and give supporting details. If you have two good reasons and one not as thought out, place the 2nd best reason first, then the worst one, and finish it with the best reason. People usually remember the first and last things that they read. Try to make the reader follow your position. Conclusion: The conclusion is basically a summary of all that you've just said and is used to tie up any loose strings. It's a reflection of the intro and therefore, may contain similar aspects. If you have a scenario in the intro you can rewrite it in the conclusion showing what would happen if the reader took your advice. For example,lets say that you're writing on the topic of dress codes and you are strongly for uniforms. In the intro you might have a scenario where a student is being ridiculed by a bully due to their choice of clothing and being called 'dorky'. In the conclusion you could have that same bully now asking for help on an assignment because the focus is taken off of clothing and directed to studies. The conclusion will be the last thing read and remembered most clearly, so give it a strong voice that depicts the message you want to get across. Extra facts: .
Don't include personal information on your essays 'I do/don't like school uniforms because I think...' .
Instead try to use statistics, quotes,ect. 'There is a shocking amount of increase in the percent of failing grades. This can be credited to the sudden prominence of fashionable clothing with adolescence. With school uniforms. . . 2. As in any essay, refrain from using slang 3. Chose a topic that you can relate to, you'll writing will be stronger if it comes from your own personal opinions. (but remember not to use personal info) First of all, you forgot the thesis statement. Your thesis statement shows what three main points that suppport the main point your arguing. Second of all, a thesis statement is one sentence, has three arguments, doesn't give examples, and it makes sense. (MORE)
