  • Hi.

  • Welcome to another.

  • I'll video an obvious question students have after learning argument.

  • And discussion s a structure is in what circumstance each is used.

  • And that is thesis object of today's lesson, which I have entitled how to decide whether to use argument or discussion s a structure.

  • If you find this video helpful, visit my blogging.

  • I'll I'll start comb and join us at the Forum Eilts network dot com.

  • The S e u right in response to a Niles task to question, will typically require you do one of the following.

  • Make a claim and prove it with evidence.

  • Discuss a topic and draw a conclusion.

  • Argue or discuss the advantages and or disadvantages of a topic.

  • Argue or discuss problems associated with the topic and or suggest solutions, argued or discuss the causes and or effects of a topic or address more than one question in your essay.

  • The manner in which you respond to these circumstances will very based on situation, and it is important to notes that you will need to be dynamic in order to respond appropriately.

  • So in the next few minutes, we're going to go over how to interpret test two questions and established the most effective s a structure in response.

  • So, as a rule of thumb, I suggest students structure their task to response as an argument essay whenever possible.

  • And the reason for this is that are you gonna say structure is much more straightforward than than discussion?

  • It's a structure, and thus the grammatical and lexical forms needed to compose it effectively are easier to write.

  • And as you know, it's important to remember that on your isles exam, your top priority is maximizing your score, and there's anything you can do to simplify.

  • The writing process can contribute to better band results.

  • So in some of the following examples where you could choose either discussion or argument, it's a structure.

  • I will be advising you to select argument SC structure.

  • So let's take a look at an example.

  • Question.

  • Television has a negative effect on personality development among young people.

  • Do you agree or disagree?

  • Selecting the type of SC you will need to write requires identifying and understanding the questions action words.

  • So as you recall action words of the words in the question that either instruct the students to do something war.

  • Um illicit action from the student.

  • So in this essay question, do your agree or disagree?

  • Are the words that instruct the candidate to respond in a certain manner?

  • In this particular instance, the action words air asking the candidates for a one sided opinion either agree or disagree.

  • Now, although, um, this opinion could be reached following a look at both sides of the topic, the most straightforward.

  • And as I mentioned, the easiest way to respond to this as a question is using an argument s a structure.

  • So this would be the best approach in this instance.

  • Now look at this version of the same question Television has a negative effect on personality development among young people.

  • Discuss this statement and form an opinion.

  • So in this instance, the instruction words are discussed this statement and form an opinion.

  • The candidate is thus being told to analyze varying positions on the topic as a basis for a reasoned conclusion.

  • So thus, a straightforward discussion essay that looks at both sides of the of this statement on television and its effects on young people would be the only correct structure.

  • Three only correct structural response, so we could not respond to this essay question as an argument.

  • Essie.

  • Now let's have a look at this version of the question.

  • Television has a negative effect on personality development among young people suggest solutions to counter growing TV consumption.

  • So here the instruction words are eliciting suggested solutions that address the problem of TV consumption among young people.

  • The question is not asking the student to analyze the viability of any suggested solution.

  • Um, so there would be no needs to to discuss any proposed solution, you know, as a means to come to a conclusion whether that suggested solution was viable or not.

  • That's not what the essay question is asking us to do.

  • It's asking us to simply suggest solutions, and in doing that, you know plausible solutions that would be able to counter, um, growing TV consumption.

  • So the candidate would be best to declare two or three possible solutions and confidently support these solutions with evidence.

  • Using an argument s a structure, so that would be the correct approach here.

  • Now, have a look at this question.

  • Young people are watching increasing amounts of television these days.

  • Do the advantages of this trend outweigh the disadvantages, so here.

  • The instruction words, um, the instruction words are asking the candidate to conclude whether or not the increasing consumption of television among young people poses more advantages than disadvantages.

  • So both argument and discussion essay structures are capable of producing this conclusion.

  • However, it is once again a situation where the candidate is best to formulate an argument and then structure.

  • There s a around that argument.

  • So in the events of the candidates, for example, felt there were more advantages than disadvantages.

  • Their argument essay would devote at least one supporting paragraph to illustrate these advantages.

  • So they're well, firstly, if we were to do this as an argument essay, of course you would have some sort of thesis in the in.

  • The introduction paragraph on that thesis would say something like.

  • It is argued that the advantages of this trend outweigh the disadvantages.

  • So their argument essay would devote at least one supporting paragraph to illustrate these advantages.

  • And then a following supporting paragraph would analyze and likely work to prove the disadvantages are minor or invalid when compared to the advantages.

  • Okay, because the ultimate goal here is obviously to show that the advantages side is stronger.

  • So that's the argument is a structure would be the most effective approach to this question.

  • Now, this version of the question we have young people are watching increasing amounts of television these days Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this.

  • Um, so this question is obviously very similar to the preceding one.

  • However, your response style will be completely different.

  • So as you can see, the instruction words, uh, make clear that you are going to be examining and comparing the advantages and the disadvantages connected to television consumption among young people.

  • So this you will need to structure response that allows you to weigh these two areas.

  • Um and, uh and then, you know, from that comparison, derives some sort of conclusion.

  • And so obviously, discussion s a structure is the most fitting way to address this question.

  • Now, in this version of the question we have, young people are watching increasing amounts of television these days.

  • What are the causes and effects of this trend?

  • So the instruction words in this version of the question require you to declare and prove yeah, discuss and concludes the causes of increasing television consumption among young people and the effects of this increase has.

  • So because, you know it's either declaring proof or discuss and conclude, then either s a structure could be used.

  • So, as I explained before in such an instance, it is, you know, nine times outta 10.

  • Best to go with a straightforward argument essay.

  • And, uh, this would, in this instance in involved declaring at least one cause and at least one effect in the introduction paragraph and then showing these to be fact in the supporting paragraphs, Bye, bringing up examples, um, that illustrates and demonstrate how these the causes and the effects that you get your declaring in your introduction or in fact, reality and and should that and the reader should agree that they are, they are plausible causes and effects of the trend.

  • Okay, the final version of the question is a double action essay question.

  • So these types of questions require you to be dynamic and creative, regardless of the style of essay you choose to write.

  • Double action questions typically require one question to be addressed in the first supporting paragraph and the second question to be addressed in the second supporting paragraph.

  • However, if you're faced with a double action question that asks you for your opinion, as this example question does.

  • So what is your opinion of this?

  • What effects do you think this has a mental development?

  • Um, in this instance, I advise you to address the what is your opinion portion of the question as some sort of thesis?

  • Because, you know, typically, the second part of the question will cause you to have a discussion that will act as support for your thesis.

  • In this example, I would likely share my opinion as a clear thesis statement and then used the outline sentence too.

  • Declare, um, the mental development effects.

  • Okay, so this would be addressed is a thesis.

  • And this would be the parts that would be a first looked at in the outline sentence and then looked at in detail in the two supporting paragraphs.

  • And in doing that in having that look in the supporting paragraphs, we are supporting the thesis that we would declare as a response to the first question.

  • So I've written kind of an example thesis and outline sentence that would respond to this question effectively.

  • So the thesis might read.

  • I believe that increased television consumption among young people is an extremely negative phenomenon occurring in the world today.

  • Okay, that's the thesis.

  • And as you can see that directly response to the first question.

  • What is your opinion of this?

  • Okay.

  • And then the second sentence which starts here, this will be shown by looking at the effect it has on both attention span and the ability of young people to communicate with others.

  • Okay, so we're sharing, um too effects that we believe come about as a result of this.

  • And we're going to look at these two effects in detail in the supporting paragraphs section of the SS and some miles.

  • Instructors may advise devoting an entire supporting paragraph to addressing the you know, what is your opinion portion of the question?

  • But I feel that in focusing my to supporting paragraphs on two separate negative effects of television consumption, I feel that this axe is a fitting explanation for why I am of the opinion that increased television consumption is negative.

  • So I would not advise a candidate to address the entire paragraph two the first part of this question because the other sections of the paragraph will do that for you.

  • Now that is in this instance.

  • If you are faced with a double action tests to and neither of the two questions they're asking you directly for your opinion, well, then you would probably address one of the questions in the first supporting paragraph and then the second question in, you know, subsequent supporting paragraphs.

  • And that would be a healthy response to the question.

  • But thes sorts of questions require that you be dynamic and that you be creative.

  • Andi, you might need to tailor the response a little bit so that it is effective for your question in particular.

  • So I hope that video helps you more confident we choose the S a structure that best fits your task to question.

  • Thank you for watching and good luck with your studies.
