say im writing about the columbian exchange. if i said in my argument that it wasnt effective, would that be counted against me?
You can take any stance you’d like as long as you are able to effectively support it using the documents! My suggestion is to take the stance that aligns most accurately to the documents.
Nope. Often, the evidence that is given in the docs can be uses to support an argument and a counterargument.
The reader doesn’t have to AGREE with your argument, you just have to make an effective argument using the docs and outside evidence!
You’ve got this!
