Balanced Argument or One Sided Argument
Should the Emporium be shut down?
The Emporium is becoming a dangerous place- do you think it should be shut down?
Try to think of reasons for and against the Emporium staying open and also reasons for the Emporium shutting down.
If your lists are quite even- you will write a balanced argument and present reasons for and against to inform the reader of the differing views.
If you feel strongly then you will write a one sided argument and try to convince the reader to agree with you.
