What is an argument and persuasive essay?

 An argument and persuasive essay is a normal essay but your main goal is to convince your audience to agree with everything that you have to say in your paper. A more argumentative style is a paper that is a little bit more in your face whereas a more persuasive style is a paper that is making the same point as you would make in an argumentative style but in a nicer and kinder manner. Either route you take with writing this type of essay will still convince the readers to agree with what you have to say and to be able to see things from your point of view. As long as you fill your paper up with accurate and historical information from sources that are reliable and credible you will have written a wonderful paper.
