Writing Persuasive Paragraphs

A strong persuasive piece grabs the audience with an effective hook, offers an opinion, provides supportive details and examples, and ends with a call to action. It's easy!

Here's a quick example:

Hook: Have you ever shopped online?

Opinion: After trying it, you'll never go back to the mall!

Reason #1: You can avoid traffic and crowds.

Reason #2: All styles, colors, and sizes are available to you.

Reason #3: Everything is delivered to your home.

Restate Reasons: Shopping online offers less hassle, more choice, and convenience.

Call to Action: What are you waiting for? Try shopping online today.

With the right organizer, your students can write a strong persuasive paragraph in no time!
