Sometimes helping my sister with her homework is an interesting experience. I just spent ten minutes trying to explain to my mother that, yes, you do include the opposition’s point of view in a persuasive essay now, and no, you do have to say why they’re wrong afterward.
Mom: So, the way we wrote persuasive essays in high school — they’re not written that way anymore?
Me: Well, except in the real world.
Dad started laughing.
