PA#4 -- They Say, I Say (Refutation)
Look again at the cartoon on p. 282. Identify ONE claim that it seems to be making about your generation.
In a topic sentence, state that claim and exactly how you disagree with it. Then, show with examples and details that the cartoon makes that claim.
Then, disagree with one specific argument against the cartoonists original claim.
Finally, provide evidence -- as specific as you can find from your own life -- that the claim is not true.
You are being asked to write a classic refutation paragraph. Downshift. Get very specific.
Post a draft of the paragraph ASAP, but no later than 5 PM on Tuesday night.
Feel free to use any of the templates in Chapters 4 and 5 of TSIS.
