Quick Tips for Writing a Rebuttal I encourage you to do both a refutation and counterargument, but  if your paper leans one way or the other, that’s perfectly  fine.  You do not have to completely disagree with the author of your  editorial. Sometimes your own argument is strengthened when you  can concede on certain points, etc.  Whether you are doing a refutation, counterargument, or both, you  need to adequately represent the editorial’s main argument and  supporting points.  You want to acknowledge opposing viewpoints at some point in your  paper. In other words, anticipate what someone rebutting your  argument would say and address those issues in some way.
