  • This essay type has five paragraphs

1. An Introductory Paragraph
An introductory paragraph gives a reader some
background information about the topic. It may
also include a hook (something that attracts a
readers attention). You may write approximately
three to five sentences in your introductory.
Suppose you write an argumentative essay under
the title Should it be a Life Imprisonment for
Especially Dangerous Criminals? You may start
your essay with a question like this What do
you know about the life imprisonment in our state
and in the world? Then give the concrete facts.
Or you may start your essay with a statement
about heated debates on this topic in all
countries of the world.
2. The First Paragraph of the Body
In the first paragraph of the body you may
explain one of the points of view on this issue.
For example, you can argue that keeping
especially dangerous criminals in jail during the
whole their life is not only uneconomical, but it
is a luxury for our state. Moreover, it is cruel
and inhuman to keep people (even if these people
are especially dangerous criminals) during the
whole their life.
3. The Second Paragraph of the Body
In the second paragraph of the body explain the
other point of view (which is diametrically
opposed of the first one). You may write that
many criminals are dangerous for our society, so
they mustnt be free. It is even inhuman to other
4. The Third Paragraph of the Body
In the third paragraph of the body you may
compare these two different opinions. Write which
point of view is more convincing. Give some
examples from the world or national literature,
history, folk stories or even the experience of
your old acquaintances.
5. A Concluding Paragraph
Summarize all the information and arguments. You
may write something like this Our society must
be reliably protected. We cant abolish a life
imprisonment for especially dangerous criminals.
However, we have to be sure in the fact that
these criminals are really especially dangerous
for our society.
