Writing a five-bodyparagraphopinionessay.

Mr. Jorge A. Jiménez G.


Persuasive Essays

¨While like an expository essay in its presentation of facts, the goal of the persuasive essay is to convince the reader to accept the writer’s point of view or recommendation. The writer must build a case using facts and logic, as well as examples, expert opinion, and sound reasoning. The writer should present all sides of the argument, but must be able to communicate clearly and without equivocation why a certain position is correct¨.
