What is the next step in writing the researched argument paper? Write the “refutation” paragraph, which serves as a concession to the opposing view. In this paragraph, the reader hears the position of your opponent and learns the reasons for their beliefs about the controversial issue. The paragraph also allows you to refute the opposition’s claim. That is, you explain why you believe your opponent’s view is wrong.
