A persuasive essay is one in which you attempt to get the reader to agree with your point of view. You are trying to present arguments, research, and ideas in order to sway the reader one way or the other. 

There are a couple of databases that are helpful for persuasive essays - Points of View and CQ Researcher. You can find them on the Library Resources page under E-Resources.
