In week six, you conducted an audience analysis. In week seven, you will research how "the other" side feels about your topic and prepare a rebuttal. Your rebuttal assignment is due before midnight on Wednesday.
Listen to Elizabeth Lesser describe taking “the other” to lunch. This is a good exercise for everyone.
Another version of the video with a transcript is available here: http://www.ted.com/talks/elizabeth_lesser_take_the_other_to_lunch.html
You do not have to take someone out for a meal to do this assignment. I want you to use this as inspiration to seek out the "other" side of your topic. Demonstrate what you learned.Cite the sources you use.
I especially want you to consider:
Why do they think they are right?
What is a good rebuttal to put into your speech?
This has to be turned in before midnight on Wednesday.
This assignment can earn you up to 10 points.
