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
