Read what parents are saying about their children’s progress with Time4Writing’s online writing courses.The main purpose of writing a persuasive essay is, like the name suggests it, to convince the audience of a certain point.
We first introduce essay writing to students at the elementary level, with our Beginning Essay Writing course, where they will have an opportunity to write their first five-paragraph essay.
Our middle school online writing courses, Welcome to the Essay and Advanced Essay, teach students the fundamentals of writing essays, including the persuasive essay.
Persuasive essays are a bit like argument essays, but they tend to be a little kinder and gentler.
Argument essays require you to discuss and to attack an alternate view, while persuasive essays are attempts to convince the reader that you have a believable argument.
The high school online writing class, Exciting Essay Writing, focuses in depth on the essay writing process with preparation for college as the goal.
Time4Writing’s online writing classes for kids also cover how to interpret writing prompts in testing situations.
Once the thesis presents a well-built argument with a clear adversarial viewpoint, the rest of the essay should fall into place more easily.
Next, proofread and correct errors in grammar and mechanics, and edit to improve style and clarity.
These online writing classes for elementary, middle school, and high school students, break down the writing process into manageable chunks, easily digested by young writers.
Students steadily build writing skills and confidence with each online writing course, guided by one-on-one instruction with a dedicated, certified teacher.
