10 PTS – What to include in body paragraphs for a persuasive essay?

For an English assignment, I am required to write a persuasive essay on a given topic based on two novels I've read in class. What do I have to include in the body paragraphs?So, for example, in my first body paragraph I would state my first arguement, then what? Do I include only one example from each novel/ text to prove my point? Or am I supposed to give three examples? I AM VERY CONFUSED! I've tried searching for an outline online, but they have not been very helpful...The length of my essay is to be around 1000 words. Thanks in advance!

    You should state your argument in the opening paragraph in the first sentence. Then the first sentence of each body paragraph should have your personal reason for supporting your argument inthe opening. After the personal reason you should cite at least two examples from the books to support why you believe it. Follow that with a quote for the book (even though it says you need only two quotes it’s better to have at least one in each body paragraph to get your argument across). Good luck!
