Once you’ve written your outline and fleshed out an awesome thesis statement, you’re in the home stretch.
Now all you have to do is fill in the blanks with the evidence you’ve collected during your research.
Example: if you wanted to choose the topic of the cause of global warming and you personally believe that it’s a natural planetary process, you might actually find more evidence to support that it’s caused by human activity, or vice versa.
Choosing a position should be based on your ability to find solid research to back it up.
Example: “Too many kids use the internet without parent supervision” is a weak statement and doesn’t really show what you’re arguing.

But, “Stricter parental supervision policies should be implemented on the internet” is a strong statement that gets to the heart of what your essay is going to be about and is easy to argue against.
The essay will sound better and the better grade will be worth it.
Persuasive essays represent an important type of academic writing that could be assigned at different educational levels.
Now that you’ve left yourself some time since writing your first draft, you’re ready to edit.
Don’t just read through it to see if it’s passable. If you discover that a piece of evidence you presented doesn’t sound convincing but have another piece of evidence that would work better, don’t hesitate to make the change even if it means more work.
