    Let me know if you still have questions.

    so if i was to qualify a topic in the article, in this case would i be saying why i couldn't say that i agreed or disagreed

  • English 11 -

    In a way, yes ... by describing exactly why ... explaining/describing what it is about each of the main points that makes you agree or disagree.

    And I imagine that you need to write an all-agreeing or an all-disagreeing response. No "fence-sitting"!!

    with one of the topics i fully agree,but with a completely different topic i cant agree with because i feel that the journalist was too vague when he wrote it.

  • English 11 -

    So ... to point up the vagueness, what will you do?

  • English 11 -

    do i say why i think it is vague?

  • English 11 -

    or explain what he could have done so that it would have been more clear?

  • English 11 -

    I would ask questions, very pointed questions that point out what the author DIDN'T write. Those omitted details and/or facts are what make it all vague.

    Ask lots of questions!!

    okay thank you.

    You're welcome! =)
