Transcript of Organizing your Argument

Your Argument Argument is a way of expressing your opinion on a matter in an almost militant fashion using knowledge, with the intention of your opinion being recognized as the truth. The importance of organization Organization is important in argument because it helps guide your audience through your reasoning process. Also, by doing this it suggests the writer is quite a seasoned writer. Organization An organized written argument consists of a title,
introduction, body paragraphs and a conclusion. The title The purpose of a title is to indicate the essay topic for your audience.
The introduction? The purpose of the introduction is to help explain
the essay topic in detail and the purpose of the essay.
Introducing an argument? The three suggested ways of introducing an argument is to present a striking image, quotation or an example whether real or hypothetical. What are you trying to prove? The thesis statement answers the question “what am I trying to prove to my audience”. The thesis statement The role of the topic sentence
is to summarize
the main idea discussed in each paragraph. The
topic sentence? One way to order the body paragraphs
is to go from most important point
to least important point. Order A counter argument what is it? A counter argument is an argument that contradicts or denounces the original argument. It is advisable to address counterarguments in your essay because it demonstrates your credibility as a writer and shows that you aren’t ignorant because you acknowledge other people’s opinions.

essay is that it can cause your audience to reject your opinion. Appropriate Language Researched material In your conclusion you should
not include any new claims/arguments. The wrong thing to do in a conclusion The three steps of the writing process

expanded concept for example. Composing? Composing is the act of
creating a piece of writing. The outline? The three main parts of an outline
is an introduction, body and
conclusion. Revising Revising is the act of proofreading
and making technical corrections.
Drafting. The definition of drafting is writing a rough initial version of the essay that will later be edited. Proofreading Strategies The four proofreading strategies are to run spell and
grammar check, read the paper aloud and backwards,
speak with your instructor and then visit your writing
lab. Getting ready to hand it in Three things you should do before you hand it in is proofread, edit, and ask someone with literary knowledge to also check your work. The thesis statement is usually located
in the introduction. Argument? Barack Obama depicted here, an example of a seasoned writer. ffg You can use researched material to support your
claims/argument or you can use
it to disprove the oppositions claims/argument. Shakespeare depicted here did alot of inventing, composing and revising in his life time Its important to have a writing process because it highlights different stages of the essay, and it helps us formulate ideas The importance of
