Question Description

Of all of the different types of essay types (comparison/contrast, persuasive, argumentative, and division) which type do you prefer to write? Why? Which is the type you least prefer to write? Why?

And I need a replay for these students

Student 1

I prefer to write argumentative essay or persuasive essay, so i don't need to put a counter argument in my essay and describe the opinions and why i disagree with them.

Student 2

The argumentative essay

This is the type of essay where you prove that our opinion, theory or hypothesis about an issue is correct or more truthful than those of others. In short, it is very similar to the persuasive essay, but the difference is that you are arguing for your opinion as opposed to others, rather than directly trying to persuade someone to adopt your point of view.

  • The argument should be focused
  • The argument should be a clear statement (a question cannot be an argument)
  • It should be a topic that you can support with solid evidence
  • The argumentative essay should be based on pros and cons (see below)
  • Structure your approach well (see below)
  • Use good transition words/phrases (see below)
  • Be aware of your intended audience. How can you win them over?
  • Research your topic so your evidence is convincing.
  • Don’t overdo your language and don’t bore the reader. And don’t keep repeating your points!
  • Remember the rules of the good paragraph. One single topic per paragraph, and natural progression from one to the next.
  • End with a strong conclusion.

Make a list of the pros and cons in your plan before you start writing. Choose the most important that support your argument (the pros) and the most important to refute (the cons) and focus on them. The argumentative essay has three approaches. Choose the one that you find most effective for your argument. Do you find it better to “sell” your argument first and then present the counter arguments and refute them. Use good transition words when moving between arguments and most importantly when moving from pros to cons and vice versa. For example:

  • While I have shown that.... other may say, Opponents of this idea claim / maintain that

An essay is a writer’s composition that explores a particular topic using the writer’s perspective.

essay’s objective is to persuade readers to agree with the writer’s position. A comparison and

similarities of the subject matter with the ai...
