Arguments are made in every piece of writing, from arguing about why a new business practice should be adopted to arguing about the main theme of a literary text. This assignment asks you to examine a topic in detail and pick one side to argue. As well as using different styles of rhetoric, you should employ counter-arguments and rebuttals to strengthen your claim.
• Write a 1,000-1,200 word essay on an issue connected to ANIMAL RIGHTS.

• Remember that each body paragraph must include a relevant topic sentence (containing key words), your evidence, a citation, an explanation of your evidence and a link to your thesis statement.
