The argumentative essay :
Intro : think of your introduction as a upside down triangle: start with broad general statements and then get narrowed with the focus of each statement until you get to the thesis.
The introduction contains only facts: the introduction should contains facts FACT 1-FACT 2-FACT 3
Then state your thesis (doesn't need to be a fact - its your opinion)
First state your argument (thesis) â¦then prove itâ¦ (body)
Thesis becomes your opinion - that you will then prove :P
