Here are the full instructions on what I am looking for in your persuasive essays
You
will be asked to try to change the reader’s mind on a particular issue. You can
choose any issue you want: a global issue, like the proliferation of nuclear
weapons; a national issue, like gun control or the high cost of health
insurance; or a local issue, like the lack of playgrounds in your town. There
are only two real rules for this assignment. First, the topic you choose must
be controversial in some way. For example, I don’t want to read an essay about
how cigarettes are bad for your health. Everybody already knows that, it’s not
controversial. Second, your essay should be a subject you truly feel strongly
about. Do not choose a topic off the top of your head and then try to sound
convincing; your essay will work much better if you have a powerful opinion.
Don’t be too perfect
