P - Point

Create your point.

Base it around your cause. Is it appropriate or related to the topic? Does it give a brief understanding of your cause? Think about the effectiveness it will have and try to stay on topic aswell as keeping it straightfoward.


Creating a point on the potential harms of social networks:

Social networks have been proven that they do indeed contribute to a students failure as research explains that students who make regular use of social networks do bad in exams.

Notice instantly that there has been a use of a fact/statistic, this draws the readers attention and encourages them to read on. The phrase 'students failure' once again draws the readers attention since this is targeted at parents and they would not want their child to fail.Also, alliteration like 'that they' enhances the readers ability to memorize this and so increase the chances of them re-visiting this. Remember: always try to add as much detail as possible while still keeping it brief.

E - Evidence

Giving the readers something to keep them wanting to read on.

Arguably, this is one of the most important part of a successful PEE paragraph. This is where you enlighten your reader in any way it may be from giving them facts or just giving them quotes from experts/people. Here you provide a simple account of evidence or even multiple accounts of evidence to keep your reader going. 

Providing evidence could include:

  • Facts/Statistics.
  • Quotes. Preferably from a expert.
  • Case studies.
  • Provide experiences or personal experiences.


Keep in mind that this is only you providing some evidence, simple or complex may it be.

Do not begin to explain your evidence or refer back to your point. Focus on getting the evidence as an individual towards the reader.

E - Explanation

Joining everything together and explaining it.

Now you have the readers full attention. This is where detail comes in handy. The explanantion consists of you giving a development of your point and evidence and telling the reader why your cause is correct or literally, persuading them

Focus on:

  • Explaining your evidence and using it in a way that your reader can't deny what's going on. 
  • Include personal experiences or develop on them to express towards the reader the importance of your point.
  • Increasing your point and go in-depth as to why it is important.
  • Refer back to both evidence and point where necessary.
  • Make use of the best possible vocabulary. Is it suitable? eye-catching?
  • Explain everything as if it were together.

Think about: Now that you have the readers attention, they might be thinking: "I know that's important but why should I help?" Explain everything in clear detail and give the final arguements. Tell the reader why your cause is most important.
