Has your opinion of eating bugs changed at all since watching the video? Why or why not? If you were asked to write a paper
(should not include your opinion) people about the topic of eating bugs what pieces of evidence from the video would you want to focus on? Why would you choose those facts to emphasize?
As we watch the video again:
1. Identify the Claim and 3 reasons (there are more than 3 but you only need to pick 3). Write them onto your sheet.
As we watch the video again:
2. Identify one piece of evidence for EACH of the reasons that you wrote down. What facts/statistics or evidence did the author use to support that reason?
3. Identify the Warrants (how/why does the evidence prove the Claim?) for EACH Reason and piece of Evidence. Ask yourself, "How does _____ evidence prove that entomophagy is good for us?"
4. What is the Counter Argument/Claim? What reasons does the video provide for why people think/feel this way? How does the video prove that this thinking ISN'T correct?

*Remember that we include a Counter Argument/Claim in order to refute it and prove that our claim is the better one to have.
