Elements of an Argument

The elements of an argument : 

The elements of an argument Address the audience Define the issue State the position (argumentative assertion, claim, thesis) Provide reasons for the position Support the reasons with evidence Acknowledge opposing argument(s) Refute or concede to opposing argument(s) Sum up and appeal to the audience (call to action)

Beginning the argument : 

Beginning the argument Address the audience Understand and direct your argument to the intended audience Define the issue Explain the issue related to your argument State the position (argumentative assertion, claim, thesis) Make your point/state your opinion

The body of the argument : 

The body of the argument Provide reasons for the position Justify/explain/support the position with valid reasons Support the reasons with evidence Use concrete and verifiable evidence to support the reasons

Counterargument : 

Counterargument Acknowledge opposing argument(s) Recognize arguments that disagree with your own Refute or concede to counterargument(s) Accommodating an opposing view means the writer recognizes its validity and is willing to compromise Refuting an opposing view would require evidence that convinces the audience that the opposing argument is not valid

Concluding the argument : 

Concluding the argument Sum up and appeal to the audience (call to action)

Examples : 

Examples Can you identify the elements of an argument from a student’s essay? Read this statement and decide which element it probably represents We do need to create a better learning environment in America’s schools and recognize the strengths and differences among male and female learners. But single-gender schools are not the answer.

Examples : 

Examples If you said the previous example was probably a thesis (statement of the position) you were right Here is another example: It is true, however, that single-gender schools seem to produce a higher level of school spirit or pride.

Examples : 

Examples If you said the previous example was probably acknowledgement of a counterargument you were right Try this example: Because only one gender of student—male or female—attends school together, single-gender schools lack diversity.

Examples : 

Examples If you said the previous example was probably a reason for the position you were right Here is one more example: Single-gender schools are not the answer. If men and women don’t learn to function together in school, they might not be able to function in the “real world.” We should foster sensitivity to students regardless of gender in order to make all of our schools successful.

Final example : 

Final example If you said the previous example was probably a call to action (conclusion) you were right If you have questions regarding the elements of an argument in your own writing or others’ work ask your instructor for help
