You provide us with the right stuff in writing essays!

Hi Wyatt, these processes of persuasion have helped me by teaching me to look carefully at the position associated with opposite side. That permits me to make arguments which are meaningful to many other people and in addition helps us to be sure of the things I really do believe. I really hope these help you too!


I happened to be just curious how successful was the methods described within the article been for you personally? What were a number of your successes and failures in persuading others? What have you learned from those experiences?

Hi Haaris! It’s very hard to write a essay that is full just 20 minutes. What I suggest is that you start by writing a outline that is brief. Turn the topic into a concern. Answer the question (that is your thesis statement). Then write 3 reasons or supports for that thesis (you can make note of examples you will used to support those). Then do a conclusion that tells your reader what they’re supposed to think, do or believe after reading your essay. Example:

Should students need to write essays in 20 minutes?

Writing twenty minute essays is great for learning how to write quickly but does not teach students to imagine clearly, develop strong arguments, or fully think out answers.

Body: turn those three points above into 1-3 paragraphs with some examples.

Conclusion: Teachers must look into they give essay assignments whether they want their students to write quickly or well when.

Hi Ansumana, debate questions must be problems that have more than one answer. They even must be a thing that people disagree about. Another quality of a good debate question is this has to be something that people care who can write my essay about. Here are a few examples:

1. Could be the WACE a test that is fair?

2. Do the relevant questions regarding the WACE really test what someone has learned?

3. Does passing the WACE test mean you were ready for University?

4. Just how can the WACE become more effective?

Ansumana Allieu

This might be really marvelous. But will you please guide me more on how to write to debate questions on West African Certificate Examination (WACE)?

Hi Sofia, political power is an excellent topic you need a concern to concentrate your essay around. Think of a concern individuals have about political power, such as: “How can we make sure the government doesn’t abuse political power?” Start your essay with a tale concerning the problem. Then ask your question. Your reply to the question is your thesis. Arguing and explaining for that response is the body. Appealing to your audience to complete something or believe a way that is certain the final outcome.


English is my second language and I have a hard time to find out how to write a subject " POWER" to my essay. I’m not sure if political will work but I’m not sure how I may start. Can you please give me some advice? Thank you.


Thanks for the info. It had been really helpful.

Hi Judith, i am also a tuned writer that is academic is now interested in popular writing. Some of the instructors that I make use of have students write a paper in a certain style, but i favor to look at every one of the argumentative techniques included in our “bag of tricks." So, i believe that to persuade, the most important things is to, first of all, consider your audience carefully. Considercarefully what they know and whatever they believe, including any “false beliefs" that they could hold regarding your subject. Then considercarefully what it is them to think, do, or believe after reading your work that you actually want. Then go through the strategies that are different decide which ones could work to convince that audience best. I have several articles that are different persuasion that you may want to glance at for ideas and examples.

Virgiia..thank you . clear and targeted language for the composer of 4 books who wants to tell stories in place of more writing that is academic.

What is the difference between an academically constructed argument and memoir/ trade book on psychological topics?

Seems that Toulman is the style but need details.


this was very useful. many thanks.

Miranda–I’m so glad this short article has helped you. It certainly originates from my experience in teaching students to create instead of from a textbook. My students have taught me a whole lot! Much luck for your requirements on your courses.

Many thanks for a hub that is really great! It’s now officially on my ‘favourites’ bar. I have to do a lot of argument essays at this time for my course, and I sometimes have a time that is tricky out just how to structure them – this hub will probably assist me so much with making my arguments clearer.

Honestly, Dragos–often the simplest way to get started is merely to jot down everything you know, then jot down questions that occur to you. If you should be doing an investigation paper, after that you can start gathering information centered on the questions you have. I often just start by Googling some of the questions. Often you will not show up with research you can make use of in your paper, but it can jog you into having some good ideas. In an argument essay, what you really need is:

a response (your answer, plus what other people would answer)

3 or higher reasons for your answer

factors why the other answers aren’t as good as yours

That is basically what you are actually going to talk about.


I more or less know very well what needs to go in an essay but i am having a hard time planning my thoughts and writing down ideas on an interest.
