1. An Argumentative Statement: Makes a claim about a topic and justifies this claim with specific evidence. The claim could be an opinion, an evaluation, a cause-and-effect statement, or an interpretation. The goal of the argumentative statement is to convince the audience that the claim is true based on the evidence provided.
2. Remember that creating an outline prior to writing your statement will make organizing your thoughts a lot easier and will be beneficial to your writing process.
In a brief paragraph or two, please submit a description of statement.
