Organize a strong thesis with a persuasion map

Whether you’re writing a persuasive essay or preparing for a debate, you need a strong position that you can support with credible arguments. Sometimes it can be difficult to track how your ideas relate to one another and whether your thesis meets your requirements, but you can overcome those obstacles with the help of a persuasion map worksheet.

A persuasion map is a graphic organizer that can help students and other presenters visualize the relationships between their topics and ideas. The format is flexible enough to adapt to any kind of persuasive piece and is an excellent tool for clarifying complex topics and checking the strength of an argument.
