ACT Writing Instructor Terri of Prepped & Polished, LLC in South Natick, Massachusetts teaches you four tips to writing a high scoring persuasive ACT essay.

Today, our focus is on how to structure a high-scoring ACT persuasive essay. The ACT includes an optional essay known as the writing test, designed to measure your persuasive writing skills in 30 minutes. Currently, more and more colleges and universities are requiring or recommending it for admission or course placement purposes. When weighing whether you want your essay to be available to your schools, consider that it’s a golden opportunity to showcase your persuasive writing skills by using relevant issues to high school students.

Today, I want you to know a simple surefire strategy to structure a high-scoring, strong, persuasive response ACT essay. Let’s look at four components.

1. Before writing, spend some time planning your attack!
2. Present your case in the body paragraph.
3. Anticipate the reader’s doubts in the next body paragraph.
4. Come up with a clear, well-developed conclusion.
