Flashcard 13 - 11th Grade English Language Arts and Literacy: Writing Flashcard Set for the SBAC


The correct answer is:

counterclaim (or counterargument)


The most effective argumentative or persuasive texts include a mention of the counterclaim to acknowledge that not everyone will agree, but then offer rebuttals to that counterclaim to explain why it is an invalid or weak argument and bring the reader back to the author’s side.
