  • __________________________________________

  • __________________________________________

    3. CONCLUSION (summarize, repeat, etc.):

    _____________________________________________

And now, do the same thing for the second paragraph in your body (and for the other paragraphs you have supporting your position – be sure to use your two best paragraphs first and last).


This may be the hard part because it will seem like you are _________________.arguing against yourself, but you need to give the best reasons you can think of that others may have for disagreeing with you.

  • TOPIC SENTENCE: Some people disagree with me because __________________________

    2. SECOND OR THIRD REASONS AND/OR

    EXPLANATORY DETAILS: Remember that you

    are just acknowledging their position, not

    trying to prove it.

    3. CONCLUSION: This may simply be a statement

    like, “These sound like valid reasons, but I

    disagree.”


And now it’s your turn to argue back. _________________.

  • TOPIC SENTENCE -- Something like, “While these sound like good reasons to disagree, I still believe that…”

  • REASONS YOU DISAGREE – Be specific, use supporting details.

  • CONCLUSION – Emphasize your main points.


Finally, it’s time for the introduction _________________.
