The task is to write an argumentative essay. Use the tools and tricks that you’ve picked up over the last five weeks and avoid the pitfalls. First, do some research. Consider evidence for both possible answers to the question – yes or no. Formulate a thesis. Then, make an outline before you write your essay.
One handy way to make the outline is to use a basic form of argument as a skeleton. For example you could use a modus ponens: if p then q; p; therefore q. Spend at least one paragraph supporting your first premise – if P then Q. Then spend another paragraph supporting your second premise P. Then conclude. frame the whole thing with an introduction and you have an effective argumentative essay.
