Section 1 Argumentative Essay

Section 1 Argumentative Essay

Postby IsabelleRoche » Wed Feb 24, 2021 8:35 pm

Hi,

For Section 2 for a Task A essay, is it necessary to choose a side after arguing about an issue? Meaning, after discussing the two points of view about the chosen topic, are we expected to take a side and say which one is "better" than the other? Or is it up to us to do this or not?

Thank you.

It is your choice.

Naturally, you should choose based on your personal experience writing essays. Basically, you develop a sense as to whether you are better at convincing readers as to a particular point of view, or better demonstrating your understanding of both sides. Students have excelled using either technique. Play to your strengths.
