To write a persuasive essay, follow this outline:

  1. Introductory Paragraph
    • Grab the reader’s attention by using a “hook.”
    • Give an overview of the argument.
    • Close with a thesis statement that reveals the position to be argued.
  2. Body Paragraphs
    • Side A – an unbiased account
    • Side B – an unbiased account
    • Your opinion (the only paragraph where your personal view should be incorporated)
    • Each body paragraph should focus on one piece of evidence.
    • Within each paragraph, provide sufficient supporting detail.
  3. Concluding Paragraph
    • Restate and reinforce the thesis and supporting evidence.
