How to Write an Argumentative Essay Using the Classical Model

How would you write an argumentative essay using the classical model supported by evidence and research?

An academic argument is more like a thoughtful conversation between two people with differing viewpoints on a debatable issue. However, you are required to take a position on one side of the issue. Choose one of the topics:

  • Are GMOs good for us or bad for us?
  • Should schools require vaccinations for students?
  • Would universal healthcare improve healthcare access?
  • Should medical professionals be allowed to market pharmaceuticals to their patients?
  • Should parents limit the number of activities their kids participate in?
