Argumentative Essay
 

An argumentative essay is constructed around an explicit declaration known as the hypothesis or conclusion that is questionable within the field in which you are studying. Argumentative essay reveals that your statement (opinion, theory, and hypothesis) about some observable fact is correct or more precise than others’ are.


Essay Writing


You cannot argue without backing your ideas with reasoning which should be true. Your opinion doesn’t have value in an argumentative essay, your opinion will only have value if its backed with reasons and cross questioning and answering that convinces your reader that your argument or position has a merit.

Argumentative essays are often organized in the following way:

  1. They begin with a statement of your assertion, its timeliness, significance, and relevance in relation to some phenomenon.

  2. They review critically the literature about that phenomenon.

  3. They describe how your assertion is "better" (simpler or more explanatory) than others, including improved (i.e., more reliable or valid) methods that you used to accumulate the data (case) to be explained.

Do not be afraid to revise your essay! In fact, you will probably want to change it at least once; this is called "thinking through a 'problem'" or "learning." Revisions will consist of those steps indicated in previous sections.

Additionally, you will want to figure out how your readers will object to your argument. Will they say that you have used imprecise concepts? Have you erred in collecting data? Your argument is only as strong as the objections to it. If you cannot refute or discount an objection, then you need to rethink and revise your position.
