Chapter 4- Three ways to respond ( YES, NO , OKAY BUT)
Don’t let your reader get confuse! There are three main ways to respond- always explain whether you agree, disagree or both.
Example- John claims that United States of America need a change in leadership because the leader has poor leadership skills.
Agreeing- i agree that United States need a change in leadership, a point that needs emphasizing since so many people still believe that he is a great leader.
Disagree- I disagree with John’s view because United States of America has a great leader who cares for his country.
Agree and Disagree simultaneously- Thought i concede that United States need a change in leadership, i still insist that he is a great leader with good intention.
Templates for agreeing- X is surely right about ____________ because, as she may not be aware, recent studies have shown that ________________.
Templates for disagreeing- I disagree with X’s view that ____________ because, as recent research has shown ________________________.
Templates for agreeing and disagreeing simultaneously- X is right that _________________, but she seems on more dubious ground when she claims that _________________.
