Your persuasive essay should be at least 1000 words. There is no maximum word count. It should include a revised introduction and thesis from your Week 4 Discussion, a revised and expanded version of the body paragraphs you wrote for the Week 4 Project, and finally a revised version of the conclusion you submitted to the Week 5 Discussion. Reflect on the feedback your instructor shared with you on the Week 4 Discussion, Week 4 Project, and Week 5 Discussion and revise accordingly. Edit for APA-style formatting, and proofread carefully for spelling, grammar, and mechanics. Make sure to also consider the suggestions you received from the Smarthinking tutor if you submitted the Week 4 Project to them.
The essay should include a title page and references page and have proper headers, font, and spacing. All outside sources should be cited inside the essay and documented in an APA-formatted references page.
