The First Draft of the Persuasive Essay

Hello, writers and teachers,

Great job planning your persuasive essay. Now you'll be writing your first draft. Here are your instructions:

Once you have completed your plan, start composing the rough draft. (Don't forget to skip lines - it will make the revision process much easier.) Let your ideas flow, and be generous with your words. Make sure to elaborate on your details. Give examples, include anecdotes, and share opinions and feelings. Don't worry about grammar, spelling, or word choice at this point. Instead, focus on content, organization, and voice (write to the specified audience). 

Use the following checklist to help you organize your content:

Happy writing!
