three most common ways of resounding to others' ideas
agreeing, disagreeing, or some combination of both.
It is always a good tactic to
start off your response with a straight forward formula such as "i agree" "i disagree" "i agree that ____ but I cannot agree that" One you have offered one of these straight forward statements, readers will have a strong grasp for your position and then be able to appreciate the complications you go on to offer as your response unfolds.
basic analytical or interpretive responses
You don't necessarily agree or disagree with anything but simply explain the work's meaning, style, or structure.
the most interesting interpretations tend to be
those that agree, disagree, or both- the best interpretations take strong stands relative to other interpretations.
the "duh" move
It is true that _____ but we already knew that. Disagree not with the position itself but with the assumption that it is a new or stunning revelation.
You need to do more than simply assert that you disagree with a particular view; you also have to offer persuasive reasons why you disagree. To turn something into an argument, you need to give reasons to support what you say: because another's argument fails to take relevant factors into account; because it is based on faulty or incomplete evidence; because it rests on questionable assumptions; or because it uses flawed logic.
twist it move
you agree with the evidence that someone else has presented but show through a twist of logic that this evidence actually supports your own, contradictory position.
distinguishing what you say from what they say
1. determine who is saying what in the texts you read
2. Use "I"
a reference to X's argument in your own sentences. Embedded references like these allow you to economize your train of thought and refer to other perspectives without any major interruption.
example: "We would argue that "voice markers" as we identified them earlier, are extremely important for reading comprehension.
asks you to identify an interested person or group
what is the real-world application and consequences of those claims- and what difference it would make if they are accepted.
asks you to link your argument to some larger matter that readers already deem important.
What about readers who already know why it matters?
Be as explicit as possible in answering the "so what"? question, even for those already in the know. When you step back from the text and explain why it matters, you are urging your audience to keep reading, pay attention, and care.
