Despite this feeling that this is a matter of opinion, opinions are arguments that arenâ€™t fully realized. A logical argument adds greater validity to most opinions. It makes them more persuasive and harder to attack.
Your primary task is to put together a logical argument. Your first draft should take the form of modus ponens or modus tollens (just a syllogism). You need to do your best to start with a simple syllogism and then expand it into a longer argument.
You can use I statements such as â€œI think,â€ and â€œI have observed,â€ and â€œI have confirmed or verified through research or observation or reports that such is the case.â€
NOT ALLOWED: â€œI believe,â€ and â€œI feel.â€
