Do you recommend writing a new paragraph for a counterargument or write a few sentences in one of the body paragraphs? Also, how do we conclude the argument? Would we have to relate it back to our thesis (and/or talk about how our thesis makes a stronger/better point than the counterargument) at the end of the paragraph?
Yes! Please go over this!
I would create another paragraph (final paragraph) to finalize the essay. I wouldn’t put it with another paragraph because it is often too confusing for AP readers since they have to read so many essays in a short period of time.
Mr. Lagerway will be going over DBQ writing in the second half of the stream. Fiveable also has a resource: https://app.fiveable.me/ap-world/-/ultimate-guide-dbq-2020/study-guide/ZT0GZwEWSNreRHs0jwUi
It really depends on time! Personally, I weave my counterarguments into my body paragraphs as well as doing nuance in my conclusion, but it depends on how quickly you can write.
Hope this helps
thank you so much!!
