  1. Now that you have experience brainstorming as well as differentiating fact from opinion, it is time to use those critical thinking skills. Your final job is to defend an opinion on a controversial topic. You will choose one of the topics on the attached worksheet, but there is a twist. You must create an argument for the opposing viewpoint to your own. In other words, if you agree with the statement, then you need to argue against it. If you disagree, you need to argue in support of it. For your assignment, create a list of three statements supporting or refuting the argument. Each statement needs to be factual, not opinion-based. You will need to do research in order to find the three facts that you will use. Please utilize the attached worksheet to complete the assignment.
