QUESTION
What are the five parts of a persuassive essay?? And what goes in each part?
I am more of a kid I do not need some big long adult answer all I need to know is what goes in the 1 body paragraph and the 2 body paragraph and the 3 body paragraph?? Please help!!!

Note: I am a in middle school!!!

ANSWER
I am in middle school too. There are actually five paragraphs.

I. Intro
II. Supporting Statement 1
III. Supporting Statement 2
IV. Supporting Statement 3
V. “Quash”
VI. Conclusion

You begin your introduction opening the topic, support it three times, and then “quash” the other side, where you put it down.

For example, if you argued that marijuana should be legalized, you could say it could be used for health benefits, and two other things. Then in your “quash” say “It has been argued that marijuana is an addiction and leads to crime. However, with the proper federal control, marijuana can avoid this problem”. That is the point of the QUASH.

Then your conclusion where you compress it all into one paragraph.

Good luck!
