2)Give two arguments for- Make sure each argument has an example.
3)Give two arguments against- Again, each argument needs an example.

If you want to send the actually essay you are struggling with in that would help as I could provide more detail
Make sure you spend 5 mins planning before you actually start to write the essay as it will save so much time and make your writing a lot more focused.
i don't really have a structure but this is what i usually do
intro - explain the key term in the question
3 / 4 paragraphs picking apart the extract, focusing on one point at a time - analyse and evaluate. add in your own knowledge/case studies/facts to support or oppose the argument in the extract. bring in provenance - is the source biased? what is the publisher, author, etc. place this anywhere tbh, intro/main body/conclusion - without it you won't get a high mark
conclusion - basically summarising the article's points and whether or not they're credible and why
if you'd like, i can share you one of my extract qs, just drop me a DM with a particular topic
