You'll see I use a special mnemonic to help students remember the structure of an essay:

➡️Introduction: HAT (just like you put a hat on the top of your head, you put a hat on the top of your essay)

➡️Body: ACEIT (Ace it)

➡️Counterclaim: FAUCET (To 'turn it up' or 'pour it on')

➡️Conclusion: ATT (what’s the last thing you make sure you have before your leave the house ?– your phone – your AT&T! – ok, not everyone has AT&T but the students get the idea!)

My students appreciated having this argumentative essay graphic organizer set in their own writing folders so they always had something with which to refer. I think your students will love this set too and that you will love the results!
