supporting information should be backed by research and the findings of subject matter experts (Duffin).

Thesis & Development

Your thesis is the glue that holds your essay together and binds the facts and statements throughout. Everything written in your body and conclusion should serve to support and validate your thesis. As you draft your essay and make your supporting arguments, you should develop your thesis to align more clearly with the whole of the article. While a thesis can be complicated, the essay should serve to interpret and clarify your thesis statement (Duffin).

The Tension

The tension of your argument is not the stress you feel about turning in your essay on time. The pressure of an idea is the “grey area” between the black and white sides of the claim. While either side of the statement may have a valid case to be made, the essay should be bound by reason to not only understand and respond to the counterargument but to dispute it using fact and evidence. The counterargument is an integral part of your argument, and comprehending and analyzing the opposition will strengthen your argument (Duffin).

The Structure

The structure of your argument sets the stage for how the reader will understand your thought progression and make sense of your opinion. Always remember to be clear and concise so the reader can interpret the meaning behind your writing and identify how your points connect to your thesis. While there is no specific blueprint to follow when writing an essay, you should always structure your essay to suit your argument (Duffin).


In leadership, effective written communication is seen in WARNORDs and OPLANs, circulars and memorandums, and regulations. These written communications provide clear instructions with all the necessary details to effectively annotate the subject. In the case of warning orders and operation plans, information is provided to disseminate details for events and other happenings accurately. Circulars and memorandums serve the same purpose on a broader scale, usually written about a warning order, operation plan, regulation, notification, or policy change. Principles serve as a way to clarify rules and provide accurate information for personnel to adhere to those rules.
