THE GENRE OF ARGUMENT is a rhetoric that defines the distinguishing characteristics of the argument paper, which students can understand easily once they are aware of its context and purpose. By looking at argument as a genre, students gain insight into how purpose influences many features of successful argumentative writin. Students are led to find the problem within a topic and develop a position or thesis in response to that situation. The overt consideration of genre will help students to apply generic conventions in a multiplicity of contexts.In establishing a context for an argumentative essay, the writer must present sufficient background information so that the reader understands the situation but not so much ... claim that expresses their ideas is rarely true 100 percent of the time.
