ENG 101 Kauffman -Composition: Articles & Databases

The Opposing Point of View

A strong, well-written research paper will acknowledge and consider the opposing viewpoint, and then go on to refute that position.  So, for example, if you are arguing in favor of something, you want to find an article that argues against that same thing.  Discuss this opposing viewpoint in your paper, and then discuss why that view point is wrong.
