2.Once you have read the assignment above, go to the Opposing Viewpoints database, (Links to an external site.) which is available through Wilmington University’s library. In order for the link to work, you must be logged into Webcampus. You can also find the database by going to Wilmington’s website, clicking on the “Library” link at the top of the page, selecting “Find Articles and More” from the Research section of that page, and then scrolling through the list of available databases until you find Opposing Viewpoints.
This database will provide you different perspectives on major issues. For example, if you search for “Cloning” you will find articles that both support cloning and articles that disapprove of it. This database is very important for this assignment because it will not only help you to select topic, but it will also be where you find all of the sources you will use when you write the refutation essay itself.
Browse through this database until you find a perspective on a topic that you disagree with and would like to refute in your refutation essay. Then read a few articles that relate to the topic in order for you to gain a better overall understanding of it. Once you have found a topic and read a few articles related to it, post what the topic is and at least three ways that you will refute it in an essay. Your refutation ideas can come from the articles you have read because you will need outside sources for this essay.
