Assignment: Persuasive Essay Characteristics

In a persuasive essay, the writer assumes a position on a subject—which your text refers to as taking a stand—and then tries to persuade his/her readers to agree with that position by supplying evidence that is accurate and trustworthy. In this assignment, you will have an opportunity to evaluate the strategies other writers use to write persuasive

CheckPoint: Brainstorming Techniques

In traditional brainstorming, individuals or groups of people compile ideas on a topic but do not evaluate or organize the ideas presented. In contrast, mind-mapping (also called concept mapping) visually places the thoughts into categories.

CheckPoint: Thesis Statements

Course Syllabus Page 12 COM 120

COM 120 Effective Persuasive Writing

A thesis statement should be created for every academic paper you write. Often appearing at the end of a paper’s introduction, the thesis informs readers in a concise manner regarding your intention in writing the paper. The thesis statement should consist of one declarative sentence that summarizes the main idea of the essay in 25 or fewer

Discussion Question 1

Writing a topic sentence is similar to writing a thesis sentence but on a smaller scale. Whereas, the thesis statement conveys the main idea of the entire paper, a topic sentence conveys the main idea of a single paragraph. Having a topic sentence in each paragraph helps to ensure unification of the ideas in the paragraph. Because any sentence that does not pertain to the topic sentence should not be included, a topic sentence automatically unifies the paragraph.

Assignment: Full Sentence Outline, Thesis Statement, and Working Reference List

Before you write a first draft of your Persuasive Essay, you will need to organize the structure of your paper. One way to organize your ideas is by creating a formal outline. Normally, an outline organizes only the body of your paper.

Although you are required to provide your thesis statement at the top of this outline guide, the thesis itself will be part of the introduction

CheckPoint: Paragraphs

Often, writers use more than one type of supporting paragraph to develop an essay. The type of supporting paragraph depends on the type of thesis statement the writer has chosen. For example, an argument might be supported by an example or cause/effect, and a personal experience might be supported by details.

In this CheckPoint, you will determine the kinds of supporting paragraphs that are best suited for your thesis statement.

CheckPoint: Introductions and Conclusions

An effective introduction serves to arouse a reader’s interest. Starting a paper with “In this paper, I will…” is the surest route to boredom. Just as a first impression when meeting someone is important, a first impression when reading an essay is also important.

A writer can begin a paper in many ways: with a definition, a quotation, an anecdote, an interesting or controversial statement, a question, or a directly stated thesis. Sometimes, it is also necessary to include background

As writers, we can become personally attached to our work. That attachment can make it difficult for us to see how our work might be received by an audience. Peer reviews provide a valuable opportunity to both give and to receive feedback as writers strive to create a successful final product.
