QUESTION
how to write a good persuasive essay?? need help on opening and closing!!?
k so here’s the deal our school have this extra curricular activity thing …… that only allows grade 9 to grade 12 to take part in it. now the problems comes now…. they can only choose 12 people to take part in it (the activity btw is about going to a different school and taking advance hard subjects/lessons compare to the ones we’re studying right now.)

so they can only take 12 people and there are about 400 something people trying out -> the thing is we are required to write an essay…. (im pretty godd at other subjects that doesnt include grammars and writing etc.) that is my weakness -> essays and grammars and such….

so the topic is that WHY DO I WANT TO GO TO THAT SCHOOL FOR 1 WEEK??

i got all the reasons down but i dont know how to start it without sounding plain….

my reasons are:
having a different learning environment
it would help me choose what course i want to take
likes to challenge my brain and ability once in a while
wants to learn hard stuff
to prepare me for college/ university
meet other ppl who have the same interests and curiosity as me

and that’s bout (apologies b/c its long) but i would really appreciate help right now! -> its due next friday -? feb 13 09

ANSWER
You’re very well on your way. The key to writing at any length on any subject is to start with a plan. You already know your text will be split into 3 parts:
-opening
-development
-closing.
********
You already know exactly what you want to say as the main body of the text:
-opening
-development
having a different learning environment
it would help me choose what course i want to take
likes to challenge my brain and ability once in a while
wants to learn hard stuff
to prepare me for college/ university
meet other ppl who have the same interests and curiosity as me
-closing.
********
In the same manner for the other 2 parts, you jut down simple ideas of want you want to say. For examples:
-opening
how I heard about this contest
why pick-up the challenge
-development
-closing.
summarize the advantages of the program
summarize to benefits to parties.
********
After this, you have your skeleton of a text. It’s much easier to turn those thoughts into sentences and figure out how to tie them together.
Good luck
