1) Make a table of comparisons e.g. one side of the table should be arguing FOR a point and the other side of the table AGAINST that point.

2) Make sure to research and collate a good amount of information for both sides of the argument. This shows you are not being biased as you are giving similar amounts of information from different perspectives.

3) Use words and phrases that show that you are making comparisons. So, for instance use words or phrases such as; on the other hand; however; In comparison; to compare; alternatively etc.
