Refutation in Four Movements

Divide the class into four-person groups. Present an argument to the groups.

Each group has the responsibility to come up with a refutation. To emphasize the steps the first person states the argument that will be refuted, the second person states the claim that will be used to refute that argument, the third person supports that claim, and the fourth person provides the impact - or shows shy their chances of winning are greater now that this argument is refuted.
