Topic Ready? Wear your Researcher Shoes Now

Now that you know how to set the topics for death
penalty argumentative essays, and have chosen
one, its time to start with the research. Here
are some tips
Topic Ready? Wear your Researcher Shoes Now
  • Your research should be in tandem with your topic
    otherwise what use is of the information that you
    worked so hard to dig out but cant use.
  • Always be on the lookout for statistical data.
    When you are writing an essay on the death
    penalty, you must have some statistical data
    related to crimes that can be used to support and
    strengthen your argument.

Topic Ready? Wear your Researcher Shoes Now
  • If you are citing a crime, be accurate with
    particulars involved. Check from multiple
  • Read online news articles for the latest
    developments. Read the newest events and debates
    on the death penalty.
  • Check Wikipedia for references and other
    scholarly sources for exciting content.

Research Done? Now Organise and Draft

So far, youve got the topic and the facts. It
seems like we are halfway done. Now its the time
to organise the research and sort the gold from
the junk. Organize the data that you have got
from your research and sort them according to
relevance. Not all information that you have
found would be usable for you.

Prepare your Draft
After you have organised the data collected from
the research now, its time to create the
draft. On the draft, start with the body first.
If you organise and elaborate correctly, the
draft will be your final copy itself. Just start
with the body, move to the conclusion and keep
introductions for the last.

On the Body
  • All your arguments will be elaborated along with
    your claims and the evidence in support of those.
  • Open with your main argument and place your
    claims. Provide the evidence in support of it.
  • Also, give examples of the claims that nullify
    yours and then present the rebuttal statements
    against those claims.


On the Conclusion
  • This section should bring closure to your essay.
  • Restate your thesis statement
  • Summarize your whole argument and elaborate what
    the scenario will be like if your arguments are


On the Introduction
  • This section introduces the reader to your essay
    and serves as the first point of contact.
  • Try hooking the reader from the start by opening
    with a bang. Open with a quote on capital
    punishment or with a statistical data or two.
  • Tie up the quote or data to your thesis


All are Looking Good? Now Revise and Edit
So, finally, we are down to the proofreading
stage. This is the most critical part because
this stage decides the fate of your essay. You
will be able to remove the errors and mistakes
and make the essay flawless.

All are Looking Good? Now Revise and Edit
Check for factual errors Whenever you are using
statistical data in your essay make sure that
they are correct. Presenting unauthentic
statistics in your essay isnt a good
thing. Check for grammatical and spelling
mistakes Making mistakes in grammar and spelling
is just silly and is unacceptable in so many
ways. Check your draft word by word to see that
they have been avoided.
Sample Death Penalty Essay

Title-The Death Penalty Can murder be justified
when carried out by the state?

The Ideal State
Its quite easy to take the life of a person who
has been accused and proven guilty of taking a
life, the moral support for sentencing death
penalty for such a person is readily
available. The death penalty is an inhumane
measure that humiliates, in any way it is
pursued, human dignity. It is, of itself,
contrary to the Gospel because it is freely
decided to suppress a human life that is always
sacred. Pope Francis

Public Opinions
The general population is split on the topic of
death penalty, some think its the way of
reducing crime, some think its inhumane and
should be abolished while some taking the middle
ground by saying that death penalty should not be
sentenced but is to be reserved for the rarest
cases and the most heinous of crimes.
Some Points and Counterpoints

Given below are some points people raise in
favour of the death sentence and the arguments
against them.
Death Penalty Deters Crime

People who support the death penalty, often like
to utter their favourite argument, that fear of
punishment of death stops crime, which has
neither a scientific or sociological base.
Numerous studies have been conducted regarding
this topic, and nearly all of them state that
there is no correlation between death sentences
and the decrease in crime.

Death Penalty is more Humane than Lifetime
Another populist argument is that death penalty
is the more humane method of punishment than
lifetime incarceration. What can be more humane
than keeping one alive and more inhumane than
taking their lives and robbing them of their
right to live? Lifetime imprisonment sure sounds
much where a person is confined to a few square
blocks for the rest of their lives.
Death Penalty is more Economically Feasible

Although an argument can be made on humanitarian
grounds about what can be more valuable than
life, lets take a look at few things. In the US,
due to its irreversible nature. The death
penalty, being the most severe form of
punishment, must be handled carefully. When we
have power in our hands, so much so that we can
control someones right to life, we ought to more
careful and merciful.
