This time on my blog, I will talk about what I learned in writing class on persuasive writing.
So, first of all, you have to give a clear statement of what view you are taking on the problem. Next, you need to gather evidence to support your point of view. But make sure the website you are going on is reliable, and when you copy something down from the internet, be sure to give the writer credit, or you might get in trouble because of copyright problems. Also, check out if the author who wrote the piece of evidence has a name shown because if you said “as anonymous said in…” it won’t be very convincing.
After you put down evidence, you still need to reflect on how your evidence supports your essay. You need to write down your own thoughts as well, or your essay will just be a sheet of paper with different lines from different websites.
