Question: Are Shylock’s reasons for revenge justified? Discuss

The purpose of a discussion-style essay is to explore an issue by presenting both sides of the argument. Formal, academic voice is still required, as is a wide vocabulary and standard English with ambitious vocabulary choices. (Do NOT use first person “I think…”)

Introduction (4-6 sentences)
Begin with an opening statement addressing the question.
Next, write supporting sentences to introduce each point to be discussed on one side of the argument. Then write supporting sentences to introduce each point to be discussed on the other side of the argument.

Body (4-6 paragraphs)
Paragraph 1:
Restate and expand on the first point for side 1 of the argument. (This will be the first point mentioned in the introduction.) Include evidence to support this point by describing an event and/or giving a quote from the text.

Paragraph 2:
Restate and expand on the second point for side 1 mentioned in the introduction. Include evidence to support this point by describing an event and/or giving a quote from the text.

Paragraph 3:
Restate and expand on the first point for side 2 of the argument. Include evidence to support this point by describing an event and/or giving a quote from the text.

Paragraph 4:
Restate and expand on the second point to be made for this side of the argument. Include evidence to support this point by describing an event and/or giving a quote from the text.

Conclusion (4-6 sentences)
Sum up the arguments for and against the statement.
Finish with a strong statement about the issue of revenge which answers the question.
