Example: Despite the evidence shown in previous paragraphs, there are many who strongly support the use of vending machines in public schools. List one or two of the opposing arguments supporting reasons for their claim. (1/2 Sentences) Some of their supporting arguments are that vending machines give students an opportunity to choose for themselves, they make snacking convenient and that they can be used as a bargaining method to be used only by those with privileges. Your Opinion (2 Sentences)- Write one sentence that acknowledges these reasons but supports your original claim. Although these reasons may seem understandable, they are not supported through logical evidence. Much of the evidence supports the social reasoning for vending machines but neglects the health side-effects.
