    The Value of Writing Argumentative Papers

  • 1 decade ago

    Anything controversial is good, especially if you get to debate. Gay marriages, abortion, racism, the death penalty(theres a really good one you can research, it was on the cover of The Telegraph (newspaper and website) in Alton IL today, google Mathew Davis and Rachel Hayes. Rachel was my sister in law. You can even use me as a refrance if you want to, just email me) heck you can even do which political party you support. Whatever you pick, make it something that you belive in, otherwise you're going to feel like your're lying whenever you read it. If you feel passonatly about something that you write about, it will turn out better, I promise.

    Two biggest argumentative papers are abortion and "should gays be allowed to marry", if these are taken I would suggest a paper about global warming.
