First, find a topic and do a little research so that you are generally informed on what the evidence shows regarding controversies within the topic. Then, select an argument that is, itself, at least 500 words long; this argument must have been published within the last five years, and it must have a clear author or sponsoring agency. Do not select a general position (e.g. “I’m arguing against the people who don’t like GMOs”); instead, select a specific argument (e.g. “I am countering the Center for Food Safety’s argument on a lack of scientific consensus surrounding GMOs”). Using at least five well-considered sources, refute this partisan argument using both evidence and logic.
