Argument

This section addresses issues of constructing the argument of a paper. Once you know what bits of a text you want to discuss and have started to develop your Thesis, you need to develop strategies for organizing your evidence into paragraphs and using transitions to help your reader through your argument.

The first part of this section offers some thoughts on how strong arguments work and how they grow out of interesting theses. The second part will address some of the common pitfalls of argumentation and strategies for avoiding them.
