It’s important to remember that a persuasive essay doesn't simply report information (like a typical research paper would)--it uses that information to make an argument or prove a point!
*Evidence taken from: A persuasive thesis statement is a one-sentence description of your topic AND the argument that you plan to make.
It is very easy to ask for death penalty for some heinous crime.
But before making that argument public, you must take out a moment to understand how absolute a punishment death is.
Writing death penalty essays can be challenging or fun depending on your religious or political beliefs.
It can also be a lengthy one as the supporting evidence either for or against is quite extensive.
For example, if I was arguing about the use of the death penalty in the U.
S., my thesis statement would probably look like one of the following examples: Notice that both thesis statements not only tell us WHAT the essay will be about, but also WHERE THE AUTHOR STANDS on that issue (his or her opinion) and briefly explain WHY.
Look at the ideas that some of your fellows have implemented in their papers before you.
You do not need tp expressly ape the same ideas though.
