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.<br />
To write a persuasive opinion piece begin with your opinion and then apply the rule of 3.<br />Plan, plan, plan! <br />Have THREE reasons to support your opinion.<br />When writing, begin with a clear statement of topic and opinion. Follow it up with a path that states your <br />THREE arguments.<br />Put each reason in its own <br />paragraph creating THREE <br />paragraphs.<br />
Let's get thinking about writing opinion pieces with...<br />some FOUR corners!<br />
Here is how it will work:<br />1. I will show you a statement.<br />2. You will decide your opinion.<br />3. You will have an opportunity to debate and discuss <br /> your thoughts with ``like minded`` people.<br />4. You will decide on your 3 BEST reasons to support <br /> your opinion.<br />5. You will share your thoughts with the class in an effort <br /> to persuade others to join your side.<br />Let`s give it a try...<br />

Media from other countries should be allowed to broadcast their opinions openly in Canada.<br />
So hopefully things are a little more clear.<br />Persuasive writing can easily be accomplished by remembering a two key things:<br />1. Know what your opinion is. If you are not <br /> sure, how can you expect to convince other <br /> people?<br />2. Follow the RULE OF THREE!<br />
