    Default Argumentative Essay

    I would like some help on doing my argumentative essay about Single-Sex Education, my three factors in the essay are gonna be: Less teen pregnancy, not so peer pressured on the way they look, and more focused on school. So any advice would be great on how to make this essay successful.
    Thank you!

    Do you have any statistics to back up your first point?

    I think your second and third points are the same - what benefit comes from not worrying about how they look? Paying more attention to their classes.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    _I don't think single-Sex Education reduces teen pregnancy because boys and girls become more curious and want to find out more about each other.
    _Do you mean single-Sex Education reduce violence?

    _This is something I've found from the website: Single Sex Education - The Advantages of Single Sex Education

    'Boys tend to soften their competitive edge and become more collaborative in a single sex setting. They can just be boys and not worry about what the girls might think. Boys enjoying poetry and playing in an orchestra as opposed to a marching band are the kind of thing you will see in a boys' school.

    Girls drop their shyness and begin to take risks in a single sex setting. They become more competitive. They embrace sports like field hockey and soccer with gusto without worrying about appearing like tom boys.

    Single sex education has a delightful way of encouraging children to be fearless, to be curious, to be enthusiastic - in short, to just be themselves.'

    hope it helps
