How do I BEGIN the argument essay?
Begin an argument essay with a hook meant to get your readers' attention; a good hook will begin convincing your reader to your position right away.
What do you write next in the introduction?
After the hook, you write your thesis statement.
What's a thesis?
The thesis is a sentence which establishes where you stand on a given topic; a strong thesis should also succinctly sum up the (generally three) arguments you'll be explaining to prove the thesis.
How do I structure the argument essay?
1. Intro is hook; 2. State Your Position (thesis); 3. Body of paper is point 1, point 2, Concession to the other side, point 3 (which is your response to their position), reiterate thesis, and any final points to ponder/reflective point to leave with the reader
Traditional outlining is one way to prepare for this essay. Setting up a graphic organizer is another. What's the difference? (Explain what they look like physically).
