I have to write a persuasive essay on a certain topic. My topic is: School Uniforms--Good or Bad? For this activity, I have to support my opinion that having school uniforms is better by convinving evidence. Some examples I can use are statistics, anecdotes, and quotations to persuade my readers. The only thing I can get right now is an anecdote. From grades 5-7 I had a school uniform in my school and this always proved to be better because some students couldn't pick on others for not having good clothes, and having a uniform also helped to make everyone in the school seem equal. Can someone please help me get more evidence to support my opinion? Thanks
Have you Googled this topic?
What did you find?
I found a really good site that listed the Pros and Cons of having school uniforms. Personally, I have a good experience with them as well. In elementary school, where there was no uniform since it was a public school, some kids used to be bullied about their attire. In 5th grade, I went to a private school and for 6th and 7th grade, I went to a charter school, and in uniforms everyone looked equal and there was less bullying about clothing.
According to your instructions, you're to find quotations and statistics. Keep looking for the information you need to support your opinion. Especially look for statistics
