Writing Arguments Weekly

This Week: Claggett teaches how to write with evidence

What is argument writing????

Argument writing is a great way to explain your opinions and perspectives about a certain topic to a particular audience. When you are writing an argument you first need a claim. A claim is your "opinion or perspective" and will be the topic of your argument. You state your claim first and then in your writing you explain why your claim is valid using specific evidence from content you learned from your teacher and/or your real life experiences. The more credible evidence you have to support your claim will create a better argument!
