A List Of 10 Unique Argumentative Essay Topics To Choose From


Most students do really well at argumentative essays because they spend much of their teen years arguing something with someone. By the time they get to college, most students are experts at arguing and trying to convince others that their point of view is correct. Because of this, argumentative essays come naturally to most students.

The main thing to remember about an argumentative essay is that you have to be able to offer strong supporting evidence about your argument. Whatever stance you take must have plenty of facts to support it. The best way to make this happen is to choose a topic that you genuinely have feelings about. The topics that you are the most passionate about are the ones that you can argue the best. Here is a list of 10 unique argumentative essay topics you can choose from if you wish:

  1. Can you find genuine friends on the internet?

  2. Should gay couples be allowed to adopt children?

  3. Should the elderly have to retake their road test for a driver’s license every few years as they age?

  4. Should school be in session all year around for elementary students?

  5. Can a college degree earned online be as good as one learned on campus?

  6. Should contact football be played by elementary school children?

  7. Is Facebook causing us to lose our privacy?

  8. Can cyber bullying be stopped?

  9. Should abortion be legal if you are raped?

  10. Are professional athletes overpaid?

An argumentative essay is very structured. You can use the introduction to state your argument very clearly so your audience knows exactly where you stand. The body of the essay needs to be used to give factual evidence of your side of the argument. Use a different paragraph for each piece of evidence you have. Make sure your facts are stated clearly. Your conclusion should restate your argument and your position as well as review the facts that you used to prove your argument. Your audience should be convinced that your position is correct by the end of the essay. It should be hard for them not to agree with you without refuting the evidence you have reported. You may want to include why it is important for others to agree with your point of view and the possible ramifications of your argument.
