When writing an argumentative essay, you should state your belief in something. You need to try to persuade the reader to agree with you. In order to do this, you need facts. You cannot just say something without proof or back-up. When you give facts, it makes it easier to get the reader to agree.
     Your topic should be specific, not too general. Your essay should also contain an argument. It shouldn't be something random. When writing, remember these tips.
