The argumentative essay requires that students investigate a topic, collect, generate and evaluate evidence, and position themselves in a concise fashion. Before starting to write, find argumentative research paper topics and choose more appropriate.
Be aware that there may be some confusion between expository and argumentative essays. Both are similar but the argumentative essay and the expository one differ in how much prewriting (invention) is required. The argumentative paper is usually assigned as a capstone, final project in the first year of writing or advanced composition courses. It involves extensive research. Expository essays require less research, and are therefore shorter in length. Expository essays are frequently used for writing exercises, or tests like the GED or GRE.
A COMPLETE GUARD
It may be useful to think about an essay as a conversation, debate or conversation with a classmate. If I were discussing the causes of World War II, and their current effect on those who experienced it, there would be an beginning, middle, end, and ending to the conversation. In fact, if the argument were to be ended in the middle or second of my point, then questions would arise about the current effect on those who experienced the conflict. Argumentative essays should be complete and logical.
FIVE PARAGRAPH ESSAY
The five-paragraph method is one of the most common ways to write argumentative essays. But, this isn't the only method for writing argumentative essays. It may sound simple. This method comprises (a) an introduction paragraph (b), three evidentiary bodies paragraphs that can include discussion of opposing points and (c) a concluding paragraph.
LONGER ARGUMENTATIVE THESE ESSAYS
Complex issues require detailed research and detailed essays. Argumentative essays that include empirical research and/or multiple sources of research will likely exceed five pages. Before the essay can be concluded, the authors will need to discuss the background, information, credibility and other opinions. Assignments will influence many of these issues.
