Writing an argument calls for one to know how to argue and support their points of view. For an argument to be effective, one must plan on how to present their critical thinking about the topic or subject in question. It requires examination of claims, weighing of evidence and making judgments on one's ideas and the ideas of others.
Choosing a topic is the starting point to writing the argument; after choosing the area to write on , one narrows it down to a topic and in-turn finds a title from the topic chosen. It is good for the writer to choose a topic of argument with two conflicting view points, which is of interest to them. A deep interest to any topic is essential for the writer since it gives them dedication and enthusiasm to give the topic their best.
Any writer should keep in mind the main aim of an argument they present, in-order to convince the reader in their own point of view. Organizing is mandatory to make sure the argument ground is set earliest possible. One has to weigh both sides of the argument with an assessment of each, by making points for both sides of the argument. It helps the writer ensure that their side of the argument is the best. Evidence must be gathered to make sure a writer's argument stands out without too much drama, by providing proof which in-turn does away with unnecessary emotions.
Any informed argument content should contain an introduction, the body and the conclusion. The intro gives a brief background information, and it should draw the reader into the content. It also includes a thesis statement which acts as the main point in which the argument revolves around. In this case the thesis statement must declare the stand of the writer about the controversial topic in question.
The body of the argument must contain set up ideas which will act as the backbone of the whole argument process. Points should be stated clearly with answers given in time to any questions raised. Arguments should be clear to support and defend the points one has set up in the content they are writing. A writer should have a clear outline beforehand to make sure that all grounds to an argument are incorporated early enough in the content.
Claims in the main body should support the main concept of the argument. Paragraphs should discuss an idea at a time with the ideas falling in order of importance. Sentences used in the body of the research should be concrete to prove that what the writer is arguing is correct. The sentences should be of the right length and straight to the point to ensure that they are easily understandable. A writer should never make up evidence to support an argument because it raises grounds for criticism
A worthy informed argument must have clear opinions, therefore the writer should not believe in what they come across, for instance, from the Internet. Sources sometimes have their mistakes and a writer must make sure that information gotten from them is justifiable. A writer should use statistics to prove their points and they should remember to cite sources they have got information from, it gives evidence that the writer knows what they write on.
