How to build argument in essay

May 17, 2017

This is not my thinking but from https://www.kibin.com/essay-writing-blog/argumentative-essay-outline/

and it may be helpful in structuring an essay. It is one way of tackling a blank page, even if it seems a bit combatative. 


If you distill your argumentative essay outline down to its basics, you’ll find that it’s made of four main sections:

  1. Intro
  2. Developing Your Argument
  3. Refuting Opponents’ Arguments
  4. Conclusion

That’s not so bad! There’s really nothing to be afraid of.

Here’s how your argumentative essay outline would look if you turned it into a pretty picture:
