Modern Political Thought How to write an argument paper By: Andrew Edwards 1. The paper must be based on a debate with more than one side and on an important topic. 2. Claims are crucial to research and they must include one reason why readers should support the claim and evidence to support your reasoning. 3. Evidence must be factual and is something you and your readers can observe or is a widely accepted fact. 4. Prepare yourself for and acknowledge questions readers might have. Structure of Research Argument: Claim, (I claim that) Reason, (because of these reasons), and Evidence (which is based on this evidence) OR “I acknowledge these questions, objections, and alternatives, and I response to them with these arguments” – (Example given by Professor Day) More Information: No conjunctions (isn’t, hasn’t, won’t, etc.) are used in academic writing. Periods must be inside quotation marks in a cited quotes when using styles such as MLA. Anything with four or more lines is a block quote and in styles such as MLA, you give it its own paragraph and cite the text at the end. On works cited pages, the first line is normal but the second line is indented five spaces. There ought to be no double spaces between citations. Each citation should be in alphabetical order.
