steps on how to write a persuasive essay?
I knew how to before, but I wasn’t very good at it. I forgot how to now. Anyone who tells me the steps on how to, and describe the steps, will be given ten points.

Just tell me the steps and describe each step.
For ex:
1. Attention getter- (Definition)
2. ………………..
3. ………………..

1.Identify your main idea or point of view. Your purpose will be to persuade your audience to accept this idea or point of view.

2.Identify your audience. To write an effective persuasive essay, try to understand your audience. For example, are your readers undecided about your issue? Or are your readers hostile to your point of view?

3Considering your audience, identify the strongest supporting points for your persuasion.

4.Identify the most significant opposing view. Explaining and then refuting the opposing view strengthens the credibility and scope of your essay.
