I recently answered a question on how to write a counter argument in a persuasive essay, and pointed out that a in a good counter argument essay, you should have the counter argument sentence/sentences before you state your thesis statement. This is only my preference.

You can actually put a counter argument in any where in your essay.

Here are 3 ways on where you can put a counter argument in a persuasive essay:

  • As part of your introduction paragraphs: State and briefly discuss the counter argument before stating your thesis.
  • Just after the introduction: After you have introduced your argument, you can state your counter argument in anticipation of the reader's reaction.
  • As a paragraph after your main points: Putting the counter argument after you have discussed all points gives time to the reader to form their own opinion about the topic.
