Question: What makes a good persuasive essay?

Take a moment to reflect on your inquiry plan. Do you need to make any revisions to your original plan? If so, why?

After receiving my expository essay with feedback on it, I have decided to analyze it for some of the persuasive writing techniques I have found. This will however, set back my initial plan to begin writing by a few days. So, I will work on this in place of part of “researching essay topic”, and analyze my essay for two days, then go back to researching the topic. I will also be changing my final learning artifact to something similar to last year’s ZIP project. Instead of writing an essay, I will be creating a compiled list of these tips, with a sentence to a paragraph under each tip to exemplify my learning. At the end of the tips I¬†will also write a smaller text instead of an essay. The reason for these changes is because reading over a past recent work will allow me to find the areas I have used each writing tip, as well as work on the ones that I do not see within the essay.
