    How To Write Argumentative Paper?


    How To Write Argumentative Paper? Boy that question takes me back to my grade school days, high school debates, essay contests and college all-nighter term papers.


    I don't know of a single person that enjoyed writing these, but I wasn't bad. (And placed well in several high profile essay contests.) But you want to know how YOU
    can learn to write a good argumentative paper yourself, which is why you searched for information about the process online.


    So I'll give the five paragraph template, (the 'skeleton', if you will), of all the necessary parts of an argumentative paper that a teacher, professor or contest judge will be looking for in a well-rounded paper. It will be up to you to 'flesh it out' will all the content for your specific topic.


    So here we go....


    1) Paragraph one should be your introduction. This is where you will make a brief statement to your reader or audience about the topic and your stance toward it. It
    should make the audience aware of why this is a topic that is important, and why they should care about. It should also transition seamlessly into the supporting paragraphs below it. (By the way, your stance may also be referred to as a 'Thesis Statement'.)


    The next three paragraphs will support your point of view with a focus on a single piece of evidence.
