    Re: ask a qusetion about argument and discussion essay differences

    The argumentation essay has one purpose: to show you can develop an argument and support it with logical reasoning and examples. The discussion essay is an essay in which you simply show understanding of both sides of an argument, by demonstrating knowledge of both sides. Only after showing this understanding do you show your own personal opinion, just for fun, just for dessert, at the end. The argumentation essay begins with your topic and opinion, and the discussion essay develops both sides throughout, until the end, where you express a brief preference.
