These steps will help you get your point across clearly and concisely:
- Turn the topic into a question and answer it. Set up a big question in the title of your essay or within the first few sentences.
- State an argument—and then refute it. Introduce an idea that contrasts with your belief, and immediately explain why you disagree with it.
- Briefly outline your main points.
Other Question and Answers that can be helpful for you
1. How do you end an argumentative essay?
It’s common to conclude an argumentative essay by reiterating the thesis statement in some way, either by reminding the reader what the overarching argument was in the first place or by reviewing the main points and evidence that you covered. You don’t just want to restate your thesis statement and review your main points and call it a day, though.
2. How do you write a strong argument in an essay?
Nothing is as powerful as good, strong evidence. First, make sure you’re finding credible sources that support your argument. Then you can paraphrase, briefly summarize, or quote from your sources as you incorporate them into your paragraphs.
