This morning I was talking with my students about how to introduce an argumentative essay. I gave them four simple steps. Step two was to summarize one major position on the issue under discussion, and step three was to summarize the opposite position.

A student raised her hand and asked me whether steps two and three could be reversed. It was one of those times when I feel I’m in the presence of a zen master.
