Tips ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
example:  topic:   sharing of music files through the  Internet
Make an  assertion   about the narrowed topic.  assertion : a statement that expresses an opinion, a point of view, etc.
example:  not  an assertion   (just a statement of fact) : Earlier this year a law went into effect that allows music publishing companies to track down and sue people who share files of copyrighted music through the Internet.
assertion: It’s wrong for music companies to be able to access people’s personal computers and get them in trouble for files that happen to be there.
assertion: This law is good and needed because it protects the copyrighted material and thus the whole business of these companies.
4. Compose an  argumentative  thesis statement (you may also do this after you’ve planned or after you’ve drafted your entire essay)
argumentative thesis statement: Even though the U.S. electoral system has served our country well for more than 200 years,  it is clearly in need of major reform .    assertion (indicates that the essay will pay attention to the historical background of the issue and to contrary arguments)
argumentative thesis statement: The U.S. electoral system needs to be    assertion reformed  because it is antiquated, it doesn’t truly reflect the will of the voters, and it causes too much division in our country as shown in the last presidential election.  (indicates that the first major part of the essay will discuss the obsolescence of the system, the second will argue how it is unrepresentative and the third will talk about the political and social conflicts caused by it)
argumentative thesis statement: The United States sometimes resembles a banana republic with the way our system for electing presidents has become so uncertain and strife-ridden.  (assertion is implied)
