You and your opposing partner will now drop all advocacy of your assigned positions, working together to find a mutually agreeable consensus statement outlining the best and most valid arguments on both sides of the debate.

Your assignment is twofold. First, working together you will write a brief, 125- to 250-word essay that (a) summarizes the best and most valid arguments on both sides of the debate and (b) synthesizes these arguments into a consensus position that is more rational than the two originally assigned positions. Each of you will be asked to sign this essay, indicating that you agree with it and consider it ready to be evaluated.

Second, each of you will individually take a short quick on both positions. Each of you will also answer some survey questions about your experience.
