Writing an argumentative essay can be made easier if you chose to write on a topic that everyone is talking about. Choosing a question that everyone has agreed on the answer to is not a good idea and, therefore, not advisable by many experts. Pick an audience that disagrees with you in order for you not to be “giving a sermon to the choir”. However, it is helpful if the subject is somethingon which everyone has their own point of view. This enables to easily findthe examples to back up your essay, either from the composition or from individuals you had a discussion with. Then you should endeavour to pick a suitable argumentative essay format. Lastly, make sure to carefully choose a topic that is compelling to you and that fascinates you. Avoid choosing a topic that has been used on many occasions, for example, abortion, death penalty, or crime and punishment. One thing is for sure, your teacher must have read lots of these essays and possibly have gotten tired of the subject. Also, you may think that these topics are easy, but in reality, they are not. This is because there are many individuals familiar with argumentative essay examples and it becomes very difficult to think of a way to change their way of thinking. When writing an argumentative essay introduction, make sure it’s catchy, creative and original.
Ahh, yes, somebody said something about that on this blog just yesterday, and I have not yet looked at it...

Then claims that teachers were only teaching kids to pass multiple choice exams. Then that teachers were falsely correcting multiple choice exam answer sheets. All whilst class size and violence was on the rise, and teachers effective pay and conditions decreasing... Some of which has been covered on this blog in the past. The American Education system does not sound like a happy place to be, and I guess there is only so much bad news you can stand reading at any one time...
