Classical Arrangement

Use this structure instead of the typical 5-paragraph essay. It provides room for greater flexibility and sophistication.

Part 1: Introduction -- What inspired my argumentative response?
Part 2: Background -- What preceded my argument and/or what needs to be clarified?
Part 3: Confirmation -- What supports my argument?
Part 4: Refutation -- What challenges my argument?
Part 5: Conclusion -- What are the benefits of accepting my argument?
