I never realized that counter arguments could be/are such an integral part of writing an essay! I found that it adds and intellegence factor and says that you have considered all options but you still stand by your opinion... Amazingly, until this class, no other English teacher has made a point to state that (not even my English 101 teacher that currently teaches at YVCC!!)I really like this quote on the power point: "Who…will be able to deal more constructively with the challenges of our time: people who have only ever experienced preaching to the converted, or people who tested their understanding against the…understandings of others?" Very interesting question!!! Thanks Mr. Peters!
