Answer:

A persuasive essay is one in which you present several sides of an issue or topic, then pick a stance and try to convince, or persuade your audience why your stance is to be supported. Providing references to evidence that supports your stance is important. This type of essay should contain an introduction with a thesis statement representing your side of the topic, several body paragraphs representing your stance and side of the issue, the opposite side of the issue, and then evidence that supports your side of the issue. A conclusion paragraph will then round out the paper and your position, backing up your original thesis.

Answer:

Scholarly articles can be found in an information database. Public and academic libraries have access to these types of databases. Once you access the database, you can search by the subject of topic of your paper. Many articles can be found in full text. If you share some additional information about your thesis topic, I can show you how to search library databases for articles that can support your thesis.
