“Think about a reason given by those who disagree with your position for the topic you have chosen in this module: Focus on one reason, not all the possible arguments that they might make. Now, summarize that point as accurately as you can (about 50-75 words). Then, write a refutation or rebuttal to their point (about 100 words).
When you are done posting your response, reply to at least one classmate in no fewer than 75 words. Is the rebuttal convincing? What questions do you have about it?
Your discussion post will be graded according to the following criteria:
80% – Thoughtful original post that includes both a summary of a counterargument and your refutation (about 175 words)
20% – Thoughtful response to a classmate’s post that comments on how they have refuted the argument presented (at least 75 words) ”
