ARGUMENTATIVE WRITING: Deals with the changing, conflicting values of people


A. Intro: Begin by intriguing the reader with a concrete problem. End with your solution that is the thesis statement.

B. Supporting evidence: One or two paragraphs for each main argument. Fill paragraphs with examples, facts, values and logic that support the idea. Support should start strong and end strong. The less strong arguments go in the middle of the paper. Flimsy arguments in wastebasket

C. Refutation: After raising your main supporting ideas, take time to consider one major objection someone might have against your views or proposal. If you don’t consider objections, your arguments will be shallow and superficial.

See the objections as valid points, not troublemakers.

Don’t label, don’t ridicule.

Now, pinpoint the fallacies, correct the “facts” the objection may have mistaken, or question the values of the objection.

A second way to concede some truth is to offer a compromise. With heavy moral issues, compromise might be best, rather than trying to argue one position as better than another. The refutation section is probably the most important in the essay because it establishes your integrity as a writer, it forces you to consider your thesis more deeply, and it gives you a chance to make your argument even stronger.

D. Conclusion: The conclusion can be a simple reaffirmation of your thesis, but usually it is better to look forward. Consider ending with a dramatic statistic or example, or paint a picture of how a less-effective plan would affect people’s lives.
