This is a six page detailed essay plans for 4 different questions on Plato and Aristotle. They all include an introduction, four paragraphs and a conclusion. The essay plans are complimented by the document called ’ OCR Religious Studies- Plato NOTES’ and ‘OCR Religious Studies-Aristotle NOTES’ as many of the quotes and scholars referred to in these essay plans are explained in detail in these notes. I structured all my essays as follows:
INTRO- INCLUDING YOUR LINE OF ARGUMENT (I ALWAYS TENDED TO ARGUE AGAINST THE QUESTION AS I THOUGHT IT WAS EASIER) AND THE SCHOLARS YOU WILL USE
PARA 1- FOR THE QUESTION
PARA 2- AGAINST THE QUESTION
At the end of this paragraph i would say ‘although’ and say something that argues for the question
Then end the paragraph by saying ‘nevertheless this is not convincing as…’ and go back to your line of argument against the question.
PARA 3- FOR THE QUESTION
PARA 4- same as para 2
