Follow these steps:
- Identify your assertion - Clearly state your position or claim on the motion.
- Gather evidence - Conduct research to find supporting evidence that validates your assertion. Remember to use reliable and diverse sources.
- Develop your reasoning - Connect your assertion to the evidence by explaining the logical progression of your argument.
- Anticipate counterarguments - Consider possible objections or opposing viewpoints and prepare rebuttals to strengthen your argument.
