-Begin this paper by stating your position on this question clearly and concisely, take one or the other position (either for or against formality), but not both!
-Citing appropriate sources, present the reasons why you take this position. Be sure to make the most effective case you can.
-Then present the best evidence you can, again citing appropriate sources, against your position, that is, establish what counterarguments can be made in response to your original position.
-Finally, review your original position in light of the counterarguments, showing how they are inadequate to rebut your original statement.
