The following sample essay is an example of an Agree/Disagree essay. The technique I use in this essay can also be used to answer a TO WHAT EXTENT DO YOU AGREE essay.
The technique is to write about BOTH SIDES of a question, focusing on the GOOD points of the side you support and the NEGATIVE points of the side you go against. This way you accomplish the following:
1) You address all parts of the question
2) You express an opinion
3) Your opinion is clear throughout the essay
This will give you a high band score for TASK Achievement and Coherence if you organize your paragraphs logically as in my sample.
