    1. Choose your topic and who your audience is going to be. -Is it to your parents? Is it to the 5th grade? Is it to the principal? -When you choose your topic, make it something that you care about. Something you feel should be changed, or improved. Maybe something that you think is wrong that you disagree with, or something you think is right and agree with. 2. Research -What are the reasons you have to support your essay? What can you prove to the readers that what you think is right? Make it persuasive. :) oops. i'm telling you how to write a paper. You asked how to start it. Do you mean like how to start writing it? The topic sentence?

    start your essay with how you want to sway your audience. Tell them your thoughts example: Animal testing is cruel and unethical and I want to give you a few reasons supporting this. Its wrong, animals dont have a vote, blah blah blah...and then reinforce your stance at the end of the essay. of course, you should add your own stuff in there (example was short and sweet so you get the point) good luck

    You start a persuasive essay by thinking of a thesis that will be convincing. Then you need to structure your essay in an organized format of five paragraphs total. Remember, a persuasive essay is an essay that can convince, not only you, but also the readers about a particular argument or statement you are making. Make sure you include evidence, data, and supplemental information to back up your thesis.
