Prepare For Objections

Prepare For Objections

If you’re writing a paper on Descartes here maybe a defensive date cards conception of innate ideas then you’ll want it for instance cite John Locke’s objection and then respond to it accordingly so you need to think of and/or research these possible objections number two you have to prepare logical responses to each and here you have to be honest because it needs to be logical so it could be the case dare I say that you discover that your objection actually means is actually the there may be cases in which you can’t overcome the objection because you’re wrong if you encounter that then you really need to rework your paper right but you need to try to prepare logical responses to each of these objections and then if third you need to embed these responses into the paper itself and what all of this will do is it will improve your arguments credibility right. Learn how to prepare your reasoning with Edusson.

It will improve the forcefulness with which someone will take your argument now how can you practice this well practicing simple you need to learn how to develop an objection and the neighbor you need to practice offering brief responses to the objection so for instance here’s an example of a quick little argument and let’s see if we can develop an objection and then offer a brief response and this comes from number four of the exercise set in the book on this chapter section so here’s an example someone says classes and music and arts keep young students engaged and interested it also offers them a creative outlet therefore Elementary School should provide music and art classes for all students some people might object that music in art classes should be cut because of tight budgets and the need to focus on testing but we need to keep our priorities straight okay let’s see number one so this is sort of we saw there’s a little bit of an objection there let’s see if we can develop that objection a little bit further.

And then number two see if we can cultivate a brief response to it so notice here someone says some people might object the music in our closet should be cut because of tight budgets and the need to focus on testing okay so here the objection really is the notion that time is limited resources are limited and so institutions like schools need to be in a position to ultimately pick and choose what’s important and then prioritize those things and then offer courses accordingly if it happens to be the case that art is not a priority then accordingly those things should be cut because they’re not a priority right so but this person says but way to saying we need to keep our priorities straight so how could we offer a response to that objection but I think the objection here would be to say that wait a second number one institutions should not institutions of education primary goal is to help educate students right how what in whatever means they can write testing is not identical to education which means the testing is not a priority that should override educational curriculum that is content right because testing is about being able to make sure someone understands the content but it looks like the objection is we don’t have enough time so let’s just get rid of the content and just focus on the test but how can you focus on the testing without the content.
