Learning Objective: To understand what writing to argue is and how you

What is Writing to Argue?
1. Writing to argue involves you presenting an idea to someone
else. It can be presented as a letter, an email, a speech and
in many other ways.
2. In the text you are primarily working to put across your
argument clearly, you should not make it passionate or
emotional that is writing to persuade.
3. Writing to argue deals with hard facts and although can
include strong opinions, a good argument always remains
well balanced addressing both sides of the issue.
