    • People recognize patterns by necessity, and three is the smallest number of elements required to create a pattern. This combination of pattern and brevity results in memorable content, and that’s why the Rule of Three will make you a more engaging and convincing writer.
    • To write a persuasive opinion piece begin with your opinion and then apply the rule of 3.
      Plan, plan, plan!
      Have THREE reasons to support your opinion.
      When writing, begin with a clear statement of topic and opinion. Follow it up with a path that states your
      THREE arguments.
      Put each reason in its own
      paragraph creating THREE
      paragraphs.
    • Let's get thinking about writing opinion pieces with...
      some FOUR corners!
    • Here is how it will work:
      1. I will show you a statement.
      2. You will decide your opinion.
      3. You will have an opportunity to debate and discuss
      your thoughts with ``like minded`` people.
      4. You will decide on your 3 BEST reasons to support
      your opinion.
      5. You will share your thoughts with the class in an effort
      to persuade others to join your side.
      Let`s give it a try...
    • People have become too reliant on technology.
    • People must always be held accountable for what they say.
    • An Eye for and Eye is the best way to
      deal with offenders.
    • Students should have to pass the Literacy Test in order to graduate?
    • Media from other countries should be allowed to broadcast their opinions openly in Canada.
    • So hopefully things are a little more clear.
      Persuasive writing can easily be accomplished by remembering a two key things:
      1. Know what your opinion is. If you are not
      sure, how can you expect to convince other
      people?
      2. Follow the RULE OF THREE!
