How to Support Your Point

(1) Comparisons and Contrasts: Often used to clarify the unknown with the known. Examines similarities or dissimilarities of ideas, processes, actions, events, etc.
(2) Examples and Illustrations: Give concrete details about who, where, when, what, how and why. Add interest, memorableness, besides proving or clarifying ideas.
(3) Anecdotes: Stories that explain points you want to make. Keep them short and to the point.
(4)Definitions: Used to establish a common basis for views, and to clarify, identify or explain.
(5) Statistics: Often very persuasive because of specificness. Avoid over-use, being too exact.
