Why Learn argumentative writing?
Learning to write an effective argument is key to critical thinking skills and an important part of school/academic writing as well as real life!
Persuasive writing also involves making a claim. However, the supporting details are based on feelings and emotions.

Argument: Making a claim and supporting it using logic (not feelings).

Persuasion: Making a claim and supporting it using feelings and emotions.

Claim: The point that you are trying to get your readers to accept.

Evidence: Facts that support your claim (not opinions).

Bridge/warrant: Statement that explains how the evidence supports and
connects to the claim.

Counter-argument/concession: challenging the argument by addressing the
position of someone who may not agree with the argument.

Turn-back: Demonstrating why the counter-claim is wrong.

Audience: Who will be affected by the topic? Who will read the essay?
