How To Create A Good Topic For College Persuasive Essay


Most students get persuasive and argumentative essays confused, when they are given either as an assignment. There is a slight difference between the two that can affect how your essay turns out. An argumentative essay uses evidence and hard facts on a subject and gives them both sides of the argument and let then decide which side they are on. A persuasive essay is an essay that argues on two points of view of a subject and you have to convince the reader that one side it better than the other.

Creating a good topic for a persuasive essay can be difficult but there are some things that you can do to help you. First think of a topic that you are really passionate about, are their two sides to that topic and can you convince your reader that your point of view is better. You could also pick a topic that is in the news right now, where there are two points of views to look at, this is current and you could tell the reader stuff they don’t know about the subject. The key to picking a topic is to make sure you know a little about the subject because it you know at least a little bit, your research will be easier and you will be able to write a better essay.
