Hook
an opening that grabs your reader's attention and establishes a connection between the reader and the writer.


Support
The reasoning behind the argument.
Methods of support:
Logical appeals (facts, statistics, surveys, quotations from studies or research on the topic)
Emotional appeals (appealing to the readers' senses or emotions through imagery or anecdotes)
Personal experiences of the writer
Etc.
Refutations

Claim
Clear and straightforward statement of the writer's belief about what is being argued

Concessions

Brief restatement of the writer's main arguments.
