Writing Persuasively provides a systematic, step-by-step program for developing students’ ability to write expository essays. Writing Persuasively is divided into four parts. The first part provides activities for developing students’ oral expression and their ability to think quickly. Good language skills underpin good writing skills. The second part teaches students the formula underlying persuasive writing. The third section is designed to take students’ writing to the next level by helping them develop the techniques associated with effective writing. The final section teaches students how to incorporate research into their response.
