Final Paper

Developing an Argumentative Thesis

 

 

From Purdue website

 

An argumentative paper makes a claim about a topic and justifies this claim with specific evidence. The claim could be an opinion, a policy proposal, an evaluation, a cause-and-effect statement, or an interpretation. The goal of the argumentative paper is to convince the audience that the claim is true based on the evidence provided.

 

Example of an argumentative thesis statement:

High school graduates should be required to take a year off to pursue community service projects before entering college in order to increase their maturity and global awareness.

 

The paper that follows should:

 

  • present an argument and give evidence to support the claim that students should pursue community projects before entering college
