These are four paragraph essay structures consisting of an introduction (general to specific, thesis and outline), two block type arguments (1 paragraph = for, 1 paragraph = against), and then a conclusion (summary, restate thesis, recommendation / suggestion). The texts are all written by AEUK on a variety of topics and divided into two types; general and academic.

This text can be used in a variety of ways. It can be a reading to highlight key arguments. It can be a writing where students use the empty outline to plan a writing and then compare to the model. It can be a guided writing where the tutor provides the completed outline and the students write an essay using these ideas. It can even be used as a listening – the tutor reads out the essay and the students note down the key arguments.
