Rules of Argument


 
Always state your argument quickly and concisely, as early as possible in the presentation of your project.
When you make an assertion essential to your case, provide some examples as evidence.
Always give the fairest possible treatment to those against whom you may be arguing.
Always admit weakness in your argument and acknowledge those facts that opponents might raise against your position.
Stay on the subject throughout the project so your argument is not submerged meaningless detail.
