This Discussion gives you an opportunity to post a draft of your introduction and the first body paragraph of your persuasive essay so that you can receive feedback on their effectiveness from your peers and the instructor. You may find it helpful to post your paragraphs early in the unit so that you have time to revise them for the unit’s Assignment based on the feedback you receive and the insights you find from the Reading and Learning Activities.
Include all of the following in your Discussion post:
- A draft of your introduction for your persuasive essay using one of the techniques described in “Crafting Effective Introductions and Conclusions”
- A thesis statement as the last sentence of your introduction.
- A draft of the first body paragraph for your argument.
- Wrap up with an open-ended question about something you need help with, specific feedback you would like to receive, or introductions strategies
