For the analysis of an issue essay, I have seen some essays where the writer just uses logic/reasoning to explain each point that supports (or does not support) the statement. However I have been trying to use specific examples in each paragraph; i.e. my first paragraph will use a particular company as an example throughout to support my point, and the next one may have a historical example, etc. I guess my question is do stronger essays use concrete examples in each paragraph, or is just commentary/your opinion okay?
Definitely use specifics, and make your essay as long as possible.
