A12: Rebuttal Rewrite

Rebuttal Rewrite

As you did before with your Definition and Causal Rewrites, you’ll be required to revise and re-post your Rebuttal Argument as a Rebuttal Rewrite. You’ll publish your new post in a new Category, A12: Rebuttal Rewrite.

If you haven’t yet asked for and received feedback on your Rebuttal Argument, and you want feedback, now is the time to ask. Time is short and I will probably not be able to be as thorough as usual, but I will respond to every request for feedback received by midnight tonight.

Leave your unimproved Rebuttal Argument behind in its original post and publish a new post for your Rewrite.

  • Your original Rebuttal Argument will be a permanent part of your Non-portfolio collection of assignments.
  • You can continue to improve your A12 right up until the day Portfolios are due, although feedback may be very limited, and you will not receive a specific grade for improvements you make. The final version, however, will contribute to your overall holistic Portfolio grade.

Works Cited
You’ll need to cite two sources for this Rewrite, which can be different from those you selected for your first posts for this Argument.
