An argumentative essay is a good tool of persuasion because you show the reader:

1) You have considered both sides of the argument before choosing your position 2) You are able to anticipate and refute any opposing arguments.

Before you organize your essay, make sure that you have brainstormed both sides of the issue. Once you know what you want to say, the organization you choose should be whichever will best showcase your ideas. Plan before you start! Try a PRO vs. CON list to help you identify both sides of the issue:

PRO: Abortion should be legal CON: Abortion should not be legal ever!

 Women’s rights

 Socio-economic effects of unwanted children

 

 Child’s rights

 The moral questions and religious perspective

When an argumentative essay is assigned by your teacher, it is important to distinguish whether the assignment asks you to:

a) Present both sides of the issue equally and objectively OR

b) Present your position on the issue as stronger than the opposing position Your thesis statement must reflect clearly the purpose of your essay assignment. For example:

a) Objective stance: While many feel that a woman should have the freedom to choose whether or not to bear a child, others feel that terminating a pregnancy is immoral.

b) Taking a position: While many feel that terminating a pregnancy is immoral, the freedom to choose whether or not to bear a child should be every woman’s right.

Before you start your essay, make sure that you have done sufficient research to present the argument fairly and judiciously. You will need to back up your claims, so make sure that you cite your sources!

This outline is designed to help students understand argumentative essay outlines in more detail. The following outline is appropriate if you are taking a position on the issue.

Argumentative Essay: Point by Point This organization works well if you would like to persuade a reader of your own opinion on the issue. If a lot of your argument directly counters your opponent’s arguments, this organization can work very well.

Introduction: o Explain the importance of the issue o Summarize the opposing side’s arguments very briefly o Provide a thesis statement which recognizes your disagreement with the other side’s

argument and states your position clearly.

Body: Paragraph 1:

o State your opponent’s first argument and counter that argument directly with your points of rebuttal

o Support your points with examples and research to strengthen your position Paragraph 2:

o State your opponent’s second argument and counter that argument directly with your points of rebuttal

o Support your points with examples and research to strengthen your position Paragraph 3:

o State your opponent’s third argument and counter that argument directly with your points of rebuttal

o Support your points with examples and research to strengthen your position (Continue in this way until you have exhausted your ability to present and counter the opposition.) Paragraph 4: (optional)

o If you have additional points to strengthen your argument that do not directly counter your opponent’s point, you can provide them in the last few body paragraphs

You may continue this way (paragraph 5, 6, 7 etc.) until you exhaust your additional arguments.

Conclusion o Rephrase your main point o Summarize your main ideas in order to show how strong your position is over your

opponent’s o Provide a final thought for your reader

sides. (Do not present your opinion)

Paragraph 3: o Present the third supporting point of one side o Support the points with examples or research to illustrate their position o Present the opposing or counter point to the above claim o Support the points with examples or research to illustrate their position
