Hi Wyatt, these processes of persuasion have helped me by teaching me to look carefully in the position of this other side. That permits us to make arguments that are meaningful with other people and also helps me to make sure of the thing I really do believe. I hope these help you too!


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

Hi Haaris! It is extremely difficult to write a essay that is full just 20 minutes. The things I suggest is the fact that you begin by writing a outline that is brief. Turn the topic into a question. Answer the question (this is certainly your thesis statement). Then write 3 reasons or supports for that thesis (you can make note of examples you will use to support those). Then do a conclusion that tells the reader what they are expected 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 to write quickly but will not teach students to consider clearly, develop strong arguments, or fully think out answers.

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

Conclusion: Teachers should consider they give essay assignments whether they want their students to write quickly or well when.

Hi Ansumana, debate questions should be problems that do have more than one answer. In addition they should be a thing that people disagree about. Another quality of a debate that is good is this has to be a thing that people care about. Here are a few examples:

1. Is the WACE a test that is fair?

2. Perform some relevant questions in the WACE really test what someone has learned?

3. Does passing the WACE test mean a person is ready for University?

4. How can the WACE be much more effective?

Ansumana Allieu

This is certainly really marvelous. But are you going to please guide me more on simple tips to write to debate questions on West African Certificate Examination (WACE)?

Hi Sofia, political power is an excellent topic you need a question to target your essay around. Think about a concern people have about political power, such as: “How can we ensure that the government does not abuse political power?” Start your essay with a tale in regards to the problem. Then ask your question. Your response to the relevant real question is your thesis. Arguing and explaining for the response is your body. Attractive to your audience to complete something or believe a certain way is in conclusion.


English is my second language and I have a difficult time to figure out just how to write my essay with a subject “POWER”. I’m not sure if political is going to work but I don’t know the way I may start. Could you please give me some advice? Thank you.

Hi Judith, i am also an experienced writer that is academic has become interested in popular writing. Some of the instructors I choose to view every one of the argumentative techniques as part of our “bag of tricks. that I work with have students write a paper in a specific style, but” So, i do believe that to persuade, the essential thing that is important to, first of all, consider your audience carefully. Think about what they know and whatever they believe, including any beliefs that are”false that they could hold about your subject. Then considercarefully what it really is that you actually would like them to think, do, or believe after reading your work. Then consider the different strategies and decide those that might work to convince that audience best. We have several different articles on persuasion you could possibly want to glance at for ideas and examples.

Virgiia..thank you . clear and targeted language for the writer of 4 books who would like to tell stories instead of more academic writing.

Honestly, Dragos–often the way that is best to get started is just to jot down all you know, then jot down questions that happen to you. Then start gathering information based on your questions if you are doing a research paper, you can. I often just start with Googling some of the questions. Often you may not show up with research you can make use of in your paper, however it can jog you into having some good ideas. In a disagreement essay, everything you really need is:

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

3 or maybe more reasons that are good your answer

explanations why the other answers aren’t as effective as yours

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


I pretty much know what has to go in an essay but I’m having a time that is hard my thoughts and writing out ideas on a subject.
