Classical argument style usually consists of stating your case, why you think it is true, why you think opponents of your claim are wrong, and you conclusion. Rogerian style tries to find common ground among arguments by trying to state an idea and its criticisms as neutrally as possible, then trying to find things both arguments have in common and how the dispute can be resolved so that both sides are satisfied. There is also the Toulmin argument style where you state your case and present evidence for it and try to refute its critics but you also state any unproven assumptions you are using and try to also show any limits or caveats that your argument may have.
