Persuasive Writing- writing to convince your reader of something.



Introductions:  First impressions count for a lot- most people form an opinion quickly, and therefore, the first moments of a conversation can set a tone.  In persuasive writing, where the author's purpose is to persuade or convince the audience, the introduction is critical.  The author must be sure that the introduction does not make the reader choose the "wrong" point of view.  One way to start a lead for a persuasive piece is to use rhetorical questions.
For Example:

 Have you been hearing that elementary children are getting fat?  Do you have not enough time to exercise during the day?  Do you think we should have more time for recess than just 20 minutes?  I do!  Elementary students should have at least 45 minutes of recess EVERY day.
