Start with an introduction that defines any key terms, introduces your arguments and the sections of your report.

You should try and split your research into 3/4 parts. I did gun control and so my sections were 'Mass Shootings', 'School shootings', 'Gun Laws' and 'Self-Defence'. You have to do something similar.

In each section you should have a mini introduction. Then it's a back and forth tennis match. You present an argument, then counter it, then another argument, then counter it, etc. You finally come to a mini conclusion of which side was the strongest. Repeat this for every section.

Then write an overall conclusion summarising your entire argument in all the 4 sections.

This is quite a broad description because it's different for everybody. You really do develop it as you go along so I wouldn't worry too much.

Ahhh okay I get you, it's difficult because 5000 words is a lot so breaking in down like that makes it a little easier to tackle, that's very helpful thank you!!

No problem
And I promise you that 5000 words goes by so quickly. If you have 4 sections and put 1000 words in each, then you can do 500 words for introduction and conclusion respectively. Boom, 5000. It's actually not a lot!
