This resource is an assignment to write a persuasive essay for students in grade 10. It is a good strong and solid overview and includes general requirements, due dates, and organizational styles. Instruction and guidelines in writing an introduction, pro and con paragraphs, and conclusions are provided as well. Specific concise rules are listed for writing an effective thesis statement. Examples are given to make this more user friendly. Models of five paragraph essays could be a welcome addition to this resource, which could easily be adapted for immediate use.
