Argumentative Essays ©Tutoring and Learning Centre George Brown College 2014 www.georgebrown.ca/tlc There are many different ways to organize an argumentative essay. The most important thing to remember about an argumentative essay is that you must show both sides of a contentious issue. In other words, your topic must be debatable. 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!
