ENC0017C - Professor Ellis

A persuasive essay proposes to change your beliefs or actions on a particular issue. The author takes a side and gives their opinion on why something is good/bad, right/wrong, moral/immoral, or justified/unjustified. The topics tend to be debatable and the essay itself should have a convincing tone. While the objective is to sway your reader, it is important to have factual evidence to support your point of view. Common examples of persuasive essay topics include:
  • A politician running for office or re-election
  • A lawyer or prosecutor trying to convince a jury
  • The benefits of physical activity
  • The importance of getting a college education
