When I am hanging out with my friends, I feel like we are not necessarily hanging out. Most of my friends have smartphones which they can easily play games on or go to Instagram or Twitter. When we sit down at someone’s house, we don’t engage in as much conversation as I would like to. The person conversing is usually projecting their voice into their phone rather than everyone else. I catch myself doing this also. I find myself on my phone instead of engaging in conversation with my peers, which was the reason we decided to get together in the first place. Even though we are together, I feel as if we are all in our own worlds of the little screens on our phones.
A good introduction should not be describing arguments or providing analysis that belong in the body paragraphs. Your introduction should introduce and set up your point, rather than lay out evidence to support it. Also, while your intro is a road map for the rest of the essay, you shouldn't explicitly announce what and how you will be arguing: "I am going to prove to you that." This type of set up does not add any pertinent information and only serves as filler.

What makes up a great game is exactly what makes up a great anything—only there is more of it, because a great game has to be great in all aspects. Roger Ebert, a famous film critic, claims “no one in or out of the field has ever been able to cite a game worthy of comparison with the great dramatists, poets, filmmakers, novelists and composers.” Ebert has never played a video game, and never will. And you can tell.
“With the red thumb no-texting campaign sponsored by Nissan, many of us are putting our cell phones in our glove box or our trunk as we drive” (Graham). We all know better than to text or talk while driving because not eliminating this distraction could potentially lead to a life-or-death situation. According to The Daily Mail, “cell phone use while driving is a contributing factor to more than one-in-four car accidents across the country” (Gorman). This is only one example of how technology distracts us.
Making education free would mean the money has to be found from elsewhere. The only options available to the government would be to raise taxes or cut services elsewhere. It’s no fairer to cut other vital services than it is to make students pay for education. It doesn’t solve the problem, it only shifts the problem onto another part of the population.
Ideally, any topic used for an essay should have some controversy associated with it. Controversy is what warrants the most positive response. Not only is it bound to encourage the reader to keep on reading, it says a great deal about the writer. A student from Canada who chooses something controversial is demonstrating they have the maturity to handle such sensitive topics. This maturity translates to a better overall view of the writer, which normally leads to a higher grade.
The conclusion gives the overall verdict of the argument. You can also restate the ideas that you have discussed in the body paragraphs so as to make your point valid. The conclusion should also aim at motivating the reader to do research in the future. The conclusion is related to the argumentative introduction as the topic as well as the thesis statement is restated in a more convincing manner. The conclusion also gives you a platform of illustrating your decision concerning the argument in the article and why you have settled on that particular decision. Try not to introduce new ideas as they will give the readers an ideology that the article is not comprehensive enough.
Liza B, Thank you for your comment. We can try to get a PDF of the list on the website next week some time. So stop by again by the end of the week. Michael
