Writing Science Based Argumentative Essay TopicsWhen I was in college, I had a course in writing a science-based argumentative essay topic. In my two semesters there, I took some science based argumentative essay topics, and none of them were a hit. My course professor advised me to take a more creative approach to the subject. He advised me to write an essay that didn't focus on scientific facts or hard facts at all, but instead focused on how science is an education.
Here's what he told me: 'Science is a process of questioning, it is a scientific method of arriving at answers that can be verified by others. We don't just rely on science, we rely on it as a way of life. We don't rely on testing results, we rely on testing processes and procedures.'
What you see, from my own experience, is that most students are scared to answer questions because they are so afraid of being called 'stupid'idiot.' I know, I heard it myself...
But when we understand that this type of questioning is, in fact, the process of finding the answer to the question, and then asking further questions, there is no limit to the possibilities. We can ask 'how', and not just 'what' with regards to science - we can find out the science behind the questions, and then build upon it and start to question why, and then we can create new ways of knowing.
It's also, of course, important to state that there is no need to build a scientific explanation for every single aspect of science. It's fine to look at things in their most general forms, but to be able to explain it in a way that is easy to understand, without becoming too technical. There are ways to do that, of course, but there is no reason to avoid them. If the question of 'why'how' is involved, then you will need to look at these questions from a completely different perspective.
Writing a science based argumentative essay topic is the perfect opportunity to do just that. The question you need to ask yourself is not 'what' questions should you ask, but rather 'why' questions? You need to understand that you can't ask questions all the time; you will run out of questions!
I made a list of topics I've written my own 'argumentative essay topics' for myself, based on both my personal experiences, and from lessons I've learned from other people. But I think I should have included some other ones.
