If you enjoy arguing main points of a concept or idea, you may have a knack for argumentative synthesis writing. This is a form of essay writing that requires a considerable amount of research on a given topic. It should be engaging information that provides in-depth details on how you would proceed in proofing your main idea, question or thesis statement. Overall, you are arguing your point if you stand by it. You may have a main idea you don’t believe in have to work toward providing information as to why you are against it.
When you argue your point you either present the side you are for and determine which side you should argue if you were assigned a main point. It is often easier to present supporting evidence for a point you get to choose. This makes it easier to understand related details and how to form your essay around what you believe and what you know. When you are assigned a topic or main idea this can be challenging, especially if the point of view is something you are against. This can present unique challenges when doing your research. You already know which side you are on; it is a matter of gathering the evidence to express your argument in showing why you are on this side.
Doing research for your essay is simple when you have a few ideas to consider. You can research your idea to help you come up with a solid main idea to use if you are able to select your own. Research also helps in providing solid evidence to help you make your argument. When doing research it is recommended to use reputable sources and to use more than one source to provide more detail from different perspectives. Using such resources is important in helping to define your argument while making it credible and believable.
If you don’t agree with a main idea proposed you will have to defend your decision. This may include reflecting on your thoughts and notes for a brief time before you start writing. If you can select a main point you want to choose something you have an interest in. Something you know about that can easily be researched with proper evidenced gathered to prove your side or argument. There are various controversial issues such as gun control, abortion and the death penalty that are good examples to consider.
