I need to write a persuasive essay, what should I need to put in it to make the essay REALLY good?

QUESTION
I need to write a persuasive essay, what should I need to put in it to make the essay REALLY good?
So my teacher is kinda strict. He LOVES it when people use big complex words. So I’m pretty sure Ima put some of those. I wanna know what I need to put in the essay for it to make it persuasive? What should I avoid putting in? Please help, I need to write the essay today since he only gave us 2 days. Oh and it’s about this book called “The Pearl” we need to write if I’ll suggest the book, or not.

ANSWER
Ugh, Oh my God, I read the Pearl last year. Boringest book ever..

Anyways, avoid the words said, got, a lot, stuff, and avoid using yourself as an example.
Example: “I think..” “In my opinion…”

If you’re going to explain and persuade why it’s such an amazing book, include why it’s such an amazing book. Provide examples from the story, such as how the main character came from such poor quality, but it was so inspiring how the pearl changed his families lives, in good and bad ways. Or how moving it was in the end, and how emotional it was.
..which it wasn’t.

If you suggest why it’s a bad book, explain why it’s a bad book. Include examples, and explain why it was so monotonous. The story line was boring, blah blah.

Use words such as : monotonous, wealth, lugubrious (excessively mournful), defiant, vivacious, magnificent, immense, repulsive, and I’m sure you can find more by using a thesaurus online.
