Outline of an Argument Paper – Classical Pattern
I. Introduction
A. Attention Getter/Hook: An interesting fact, statistic or quote to get your reader’s attention.
B. Background Information: basic information about the issue and any relevant background
to the issue—current discussion, appropriate history, relevant legislation
(This information may also come in a separate paragraph after the introduction.)
C. Thesis Statement: states the position to be argued in the essay—will probably include a
“what” and “why” part.
II. Reasons that Support the Thesis Statement
A. Reason 1/Argument 1/Pro 1 (main point #1)
1.
Supporting paragraph 1
2.
Supporting paragraph 2
B. Reason 2/Argument 2/Pro 2 (main point #2)
1.
Supporting paragraph 1
2.
Supporting paragraph 2
C. Reason 3/Argument 3/Pro 3 (main point #3)
1.
Supporting paragraph 1
2.
Supporting paragraph 2, etc.
Notes about reasons/arguments section:
1. Since this is a longer paper, you will almost certainly have more than one paragraph per main
point. This means that your discussion will be more detailed.
2. Think carefully about how you order your reasons/arguments. Possible ways to order your
arguments include most familiar to least familiar or least important (weakest) to most important
(strongest).
3. Think also about how all the different arguments fit together and be sure to reflect this in your
paragraph transitions.
III. Counterarguments and Responses to Them
A. Con 1- Mention the arguments from the other side of the issue (i.e. if you’re arguing that
guns should not be allowed on college campuses, mention the arguments from the people
who think that guns should be allowed on college campuses.)
B. Refutation–Briefly refute the other side’s arguments. You may refute the argument in
three ways—see pp. 162 & 163 of your textbook for examples:
1) Disagree—claim that the counterargument is wrong, because:




It misinterprets or ignores that facts
Its claims are exaggerated
Its reasoning is not sound
Its solution to a problem will not work
2) Concede a point, but disagree nonetheless
Acknowledge that part of the counterargument is valid, but disagree with the remainder
of the argument.
3) Agree and disagree, but take a position.
Acknowledge validity of both sides of the issue, but then claim that one side is the better
choice—or the least harmful choice.
Note: This section could be placed in the paragraph following the introduction. You may also choose
to have more than one counterargument.
