Persuasive writing attempts to convince the reader that the point of view or course of action recommended by the writer is valid. What is a five paragraph essay? : What is a five paragraph essay? The five paragraph essay follows a defined format. First paragraph: Introduction Second paragraph: First supporting argument and examples Third paragraph: Second supporting argument and examples Fourth paragraph: Third supporting argument and examples Fifth paragraph: Conclusion Let’s break down each paragraph : Let’s break down each paragraph Paragraph 1 - Introduction : Paragraph 1 - Introduction Provide a catchy statement or fact to grab the readers attention Provide an additional fact about the topic State your argument Outline your reasons to back up your argument This paragraph has two purposes. First, get the reader’s attention. Second, give a brief summary of the paper. Paragraph 1 Sample : Paragraph 1 Sample I am a movie fanatic. When friends want to know what picture won the Oscar in 1980 or who played the police chief in Jaws, they ask me. My friends, though, have stopped asking me if I want to go out to the movies. I simply will not see a movie in the theatre. *The problems in getting to the theater, *the theater itself, and *the behavior of some patrons are all reasons why I often wait for a movie to show up on TV. Paragraph 2 – Supporting Argument 1 : Paragraph 2 – Supporting Argument 1 Transition word or statement to demonstrate, for example, specifically, for instance Topic sentence – what is the paragraph about? Provide examples that support your reasoning Paragraph 2 Sample : Paragraph 2 Sample First of all, just getting to the theater presents difficulties. *Leaving a home equipped with a TV and a video recorder isn't an attractive idea on a humid, cold, or rainy night. *Even if the weather cooperates, there is still a thirty-minute drive to the theater down a congested highway, followed by the hassle of looking for a parking space. *And then there are the lines. After hooking yourself to the end of a human chain, you worry about whether there will be enough tickets, whether you will get seats together, and whether many people will sneak into the line ahead of you. Paragraph 3 – Supporting Argument 2 : Paragraph 3 – Supporting Argument 2 Transition word or statement Topic sentence – what is the paragraph about? Provide examples that support your reasoning Paragraph 3 Sample : Paragraph 3 Sample After you have made it to the box office and gotten your tickets, you are confronted with the problems of the theater itself. *If you are in one of the run-down older theaters, you must adjust to the musty smell of seldom-cleaned carpets. Escaped springs lurk in the faded plush or cracked leather seats, and half the seats you sit in seem loose or tilted so that you sit at a strange angle. *The newer twin and quad theaters offer their own problems. Sitting in an area only one-quarter the size of a regular theater, moviegoers often have to put up with the sound of the movie next door. This is especially jarring when the other movie involves racing cars or a karate war and you are trying to enjoy a quiet love story. *And whether the theater is old or new, it will have floors that seem to be coated with rubber cement. By the end of a movie, shoes almost have to be pried off the floor because they have become sealed to a deadly compound of spilled soda, hardening bubble gum, and crushed Ju-Jubes. Paragraph 4 – Supporting Argument 3 : Paragraph 4 – Supporting Argument 3 Transition word or statement Topic sentence – what is the paragraph about? Provide examples that support your reasoning Paragraph 4 Sample : Paragraph 4 Sample Lastly, some of the patrons are even more of a problem than the theater itself. *Little kids race up and down the aisles, usually in giggling packs. *Teenagers try to impress their friends by talking back to the screen, whistling, and making what they consider to be hilarious noises. *Adults act as if they were at home in their own living rooms and comment loudly on the ages of the stars or why movies aren't as good anymore. * And, people of all ages crinkle candy wrappers, stick gum on their seats, and drop popcorn tubs or cups of crushed ice and soda on the floor. *They also cough and burp, squirm endlessly in their seats, file out for repeated trips to the rest rooms or concession stand, and elbow you out of the armrest on either side of your seat. Paragraph 5 – Conclusion : Paragraph 5 – Conclusion Restatement of your main point, but be sure to paraphrase, not just repeat your original sentence from the introduction paragraph. Recap your reasoning for the argument What idea or feeling do you want to leave your reader with. Ending with a question Paragraph 5 Sample : Paragraph 5 Sample After arriving home from the movies one night, I decided that I was not going to be a moviegoer anymore. *I was tired of the problems involved in getting to the movies, *dealing with the theater itself and *some of the patrons. The next day I arranged to have cable TV service installed in my home. I may now see movies a bit later than other people, but I'll be more relaxed watching box office hits in the comfort of my own living room. Make sense? KWIM?Any questions????? : Make sense?
