Knowing how to write a good argumentative text is always useful, not only for students, but also for everyday life, for example when we have to write a convincing letter. With this easy and brief guide you will learn to do it in no time without forgetting anything.
To begin with, it is important to write the title or the usual epistolary heading if it is a letter.
Then make an introduction where you expose the problem and the main idea, that is your Thesis, the topic you will be dealing with.
Often you don’t need a lot of words, but it will simply be enough for you to “introduce” your topic.
Insert in the text the first Argument in support of the thesis. Explain it clearly, based on personal experiences, information taken from various sources (books, internet, encyclopedias …) and even statistics. Enter as many arguments as possible in support of the thesis, so that it will be more convincing.
Enter a topic that seems to “interfere”, or be against, your thesis.
This is called the Antithesis. After he refutes the antithesis with information that contradicts it. Don’t insert antitheses that you won’t be able to refute properly, in this way you will only make the text more confused.
Finally, write the conclusion, in which you will reiterate your thesis in a brief manner.
The theme is a form of writing, traditionally used in the school as an exercise or exam. It requires the student to carry out, elaborate a proposal, a track assigned by the teacher.
There are various types of themes that correspond to the various types of text.
the narrative theme, which requires telling a story, a story consisting of a series of events, related to one or more people, taking place in a time and in a space;
the descriptive theme, which requires describing something or someone specifying the most significant features and aspects so as to convey an image that is as precise and complete as possible;
the expository-informative theme, which requires the supply of information, data, news concerning current events or topics dealt with at school;
the argumentative theme, which requires exposing one’s own opinions in relation to a given problem, supporting and motivating them with appropriate arguments;
the expressive theme, which requires talking about oneself, one’s emotions and feelings, especially in the form of a letter or diary;
the interpretive-evaluative theme or theme-comment, which requires explaining, interpreting and evaluating, by exposing one’s opinion or judgment, a book, a film, a work of art, a cultural event.
