For this essay, you will present your argument on the issue you have chosen and you must pick a side. Arguments do not work if they conclude, “Well, I guess they are both right.” If you find yourself changing your view halfway through the paper, edit your earlier statements to fit. The conclusion and introduction should have the same argument. Also, as in any well written argument, you must include and refute the counter argument in a respectful manner. As I’ve said before, do not pick a topic that you are so attached to that you cannot refer to the other side of the issue politely.
