This Identify Opposing Claims video also includes:
When writers disprove opposing claims, their arguments become stronger. Help your class understand this by having them view the included video or slide show. The narrator makes a chart that identifies all parts of a writing prompt for an essay on Edith Wharton's "Mrs. Manstey's View" and then proceeds to point out the places where the other side could find evidence and prove her claim wrong. She finds evidence in the text so that she will be prepared to address the counterargument when the time comes. After viewing, class members should revise their work to include opposing claims. The narrator does talk quickly at times.
