Step 1 – Understanding the Issue

In order to properly present your perspective on an issue, you must first understand the issue you are being asked to discuss. Understanding the issue allows you to fully develop your position, presenting your evidence in a way that is most effective and appropriate for the topic.
There are two steps that will help you understand the issue.

First, take a couple of minutes to read the given question carefully. Second, ask yourself the following questions:
  • What does the statement mean?
  • What is the issue at hand?
  • What is implied by the statement?
  • What is the writer’s stand on the issue?
  • What, if any, evidence does the writer use to support his position?
  • What, specifically, is my assignment?
