Effective Communication Thesis

Your persuasive essay will need to meet the following criteria:

APA 7 formatting for the document, including an appropriately formatted title page and references page

A thesis statement at the end of the introduction paragraph

An introduction paragraph that establishes the issue

Well-developed paragraphs that include evidence from sources to support your argument for a specific change in your community

Effective transitions between and within paragraphs

A conclusion paragraph that brings the essay to an effective close

Four credible sources appropriate for academic writing should be cited within the text of the essay; at least one of the cited sources should be either a book/ebook or a periodical article, preferably from the Purdue Global Library

All cited sources need to have full citations on a references page (except for any interviews you conduct, which only require in-text citations)

Standard English and a formal tone throughout the writing (e.g., stay in third-person voice, avoid slang, etc.)

A strong and well-supported argument will be at least 3–4 pages, not including the title page and references page
