GRE Argument Essay help


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

This is my first time posting here and I'm really excited. This seems like an awesome community!

I recently drafted an essay for the argument prompt and would love comments on it. I find these prompts pretty weird and vague (as I'm sure most everyone else does, too!) and would really appreciate thoughts. Constructive criticism is welcome- it's been a while since I wrote something that was analytical and evidence based. I'm happy to reciprocate. 


Woven baskets characterized by a particular distinctive pattern have previously been found only in the immediate vicinity of the prehistoric village of Palea and therefore were believed to have been made only by the Palean people. Recently, however, archaeologists discovered such a "Palean" basket in Lithos, an ancient village across the Brim River from Palea. The Brim River is very deep and broad, and so the ancient Paleans could have crossed it only by boat, and no Palean boats have been found. Thus it follows that the so-called Palean baskets were not uniquely Palean.

Write a response in which you discuss what specific evidence is needed to evaluate the argument and explain how the evidence would weaken or strengthen the argument.
