Argumentative Brief Assignment

An argumentative brief is an initial representation of your argument that is done at the "outlining" stage of your writing process. The brief shows the claim and reasons that you plan to use, as well as some indication of how you will support each reason with evidence. The brief should indicate how you plan (tentatively) to arrange and support your reasons, but that plan may change as you draft and revise your actual essay.
