I'm needing a little help on doing the higher english writing NAB.
I've decided on writing a discursive essay about Graffiti: Art or Vandalism?
I've done some research on each side of the argument but I'm finding it hard to divide it in to main points. Like how should I split it? What should the main points be? Argh! It's my first time writing a discursive for english since standard grade, and then I wasn't even great anyways I think its the stucture and content thats confusing me the most about this!
I should've picked a short story or reflective (although I really hate them)
Can anybody help me please? Obviously not do the essay, but outline a structure or something or a rough guide to write a general higher essay

This is the way I laid mine out;
First point (1 pro & 1 con)
Second point (1 pro & 1 con)
Third point (1 pro & 1 con)
To get the 'discussion' started I quoted a few controversial lines from the Bible in my introduction then went on to introduce the actual topic. Each time I took a new paragraph I tried to link it on from the paragraph before it to make it flow better. In my conclusion I gave my opinion on the topic which was gained from the points raised before in my essay.
Thats just a few small things I did for my NAB essay. I've yet to sit the actual NAB but my teachers corrected it and gave me a B so a definite pass. Hope this helps you a little.
Also, have a read through these two websites it may help you out a little more:
