Argumentative Essay

THURSDAY ~ 23/02/12

Today, we will learn about how to write an argumentative essay.
Before writing this type of essay, we must : 

- Brainstorm the ideas.
- Identify the main topics.
- Use these topics as headings.
- Decide which side you are on, i.e. which arguments are most convincing.
- Plan and write an outline for your essay.

There have a few instructions that we must follow : 

1) introduction paragraph
2) body paragraph
3) refutation paragraph
      -This is also used to support your claim. 
      -Use the counter arguments to show that your idea is the   stronger one. 
      -Do not focus only on the opposing ideas.
4) Concluding paragraph
