Monday, Week 15

November 18, 2019

Today students worked on computers to nail down these parts to their essays:

1. Sifted through articles completely to find three-five credible sources either for or against their argument. If the articles looks good, they copied/pasted the URL into a blank document.

2. Thought about the claim (the argument) and the reasons for it. Students explained their claim and the reasons behind it to a partner. Please explain yours to someone at home. Saying it aloud helps you work through the muddy explanation and understanding. It'll help your writing, promise.

3. Thought about the counter-claim (the opponent's reason for discounting what you say). Then, of course, the refutation (what you'll come back with to "shoot down" the counter). We explained these aloud as well. 


Please note that for your counter/refutation paragraphs, you aren't required to have an article to back you up. A logical, common sense reason is fine unless the refutation needs a source/study to prove it.
