Golden Rules of Argumentative Essay
An argument is a discussion involving differing viewpoints. It is a statement, or fact for oragainst a point. An argumentative essay is an elementary assignment for all levels of students. Inthis type of essay, you have to prove your point. You are changing and challenging the generalopinion. A fine-looking argumentative essay shows your command over the subject underdiscussion and capability for powerful arguments. You can construct a pleasing argumentativeessay by following a few simple guidelines.
Set a Target:
In an argumentative essay, you are trying to prove that your point is right. For that, you have toundermine the already established conventions and doctrines. But, don’t try to win by hook orcrook. Be commonsensical in stating your views. Study the topic from all possible angles. Formmultiple dimensions to your claims. Before beginning an essay, you must have a clear idea aboutthe matter under discussion. Your destination has to be marked prior to reaching the finishingpoint. A correct preplanning alone can lead you to a logical argument.
Mind the Readers’ Mind:
Your attempt is to make the reader accept your point of view. For that, a psychologicalunderstanding of the readers’ mind is essential. Know their pulse. What is the generally believednotion about your topic should be kept in your mind. You can divert from the generally acceptedideas only if you are well aware in it. Do a research. Present your version of the issue. No matterhow strange your explanation is. How you proceed to make it believable is of supremeimportant.

Choose the Angle
No opinion is one-sided. There are multiple points of view for anything and everything. For thesame reason, there are always rooms for arguments on all. As there is nothing called the ultimatetruth, the generally spread ‘truths’ about a certain topic can be viewed, studied and scrutinizedfrom a number of different angles. Which stand you opt in the given area is significant. It decidesthe direction of your essay. When making your choice, certain things have to be kept in mind.The area chosen must provide enough scope for arguments. A trivial topic restricts yourproceedings. At the same time, an interesting and relevant topic opens a wide range of opportunities before you. So it is always advisable to be extra careful in selecting the topic foryour argumentative essay.Identify your supporting points and opposing views. Provide evidence for your claim. Thepurpose of an argumentative essay is to demonstrate that your assertion is correct or moreconvincing. The success depends upon how well you present the facts and statistics.
Convince the Readers
The readers are always critical. They will not take anything for granted. A highly advancedreader community need not take in your arguments if it explains a sophisticated detailperipherally. Go deeper in to the issue. Support each and every claim with convincing points. Aweakly supported claim will be discharged without a second thought. Find adequate backgroundinformation. Make an impression that yours is not a mere claim. It is technically apt and judiciously reasonable. Such a well-backed assertion will always be readable and appealing.
