Create an urbane battle royal in class with the old Coke vs. Pepsi challenge that develops upper level high school learners skills in developing counterarguments in essay writing. The educator divides the room according to tastes, and the soda consumers collaborate and produce positive arguments for their product. A battle ensues where the sides display their best arguments, and then use those arguments to develop a thesis statement for an essay. The educator concludes by reviewing the steps in writing a counter argument.
