Supporting Evidence / Details

Alternative Arguments /
Counter Argument
Response to Alternative
Arguments. Develop Your Persuasive Arguments Sound Reasoning: There are not enough daylight hours to allow the participation of all the kids who want to play soccer. Lights on the soccer field would increase the number of hours in which games could be played. Therefore, we could form more teams and allow more kids to play.
Facts: Kids who play sports are healthier on average than kids who do not.
Examples: Since lighting its sports fields, a nearby town no longer has a waiting list to join soccer teams.
Expert Opinions: Police Chief Reyes says that lights on the soccer field would reduce crime in the area around the field. Gather Details Introduction:
* Indent
* Make sure you have five sentences. 5 (.)
* Clearly state your position - Agree or disagree
* Two reasons to support your point of view.
* State a counter argument Our town should place lights near
the soccer field so teams can play at night.

Lights will make the park around the
soccer field safer for everyone.

Lights will allow more kids to participate
in soccer.

Installing lights will be expensive. The
town doesn't want kids to use the field at
night without supervision.

S5 Closing Sentence (Sentence
wraps up what you just wrote.) Counter arguments should be given to give an unbiased picture of the essay topic at hand. Bring to light all the arguments that refute your thesis.
Some counter-arguments are better than others. You want to use ones that are actually somewhat persuasive. There’s nothing to be gained by rebutting a counter-argument that nobody believes. Two things to look for are reasonableness and popularity Counter Argument
Paragraph 4 Counter Argument Paragraph 4 (1) Restate your counter argument sentence in a different way.
(2)Elaborate on your counter argument with one sentence.
(3 & 4) Use these sentences to let the reader know why the counter argument used against you is weak.
(5) Write a closing sentence that ties your four sentences together. Counterargument Example
1. Some may argue that students lack the responsibility to have drinks in class. A big concern may be that classroom
property may be damaged. 2.This, however, is not true. Students drink soda in the cafeteria all the time, and rarely is there a spill. Also, there could be a compromise where students only bring in clear liquids. This would eliminate any stains if there was a spill. A final reason is that there could be a rule that all drinks had to have twist on or snap on lids. 3.These reasons eliminate the concern of our lack of responsibility. 1.
