Thinking Thursday – November 3rd

Time to think of what makes an effective argument. With the people around you, generate the best two arguments for and against the following statement.

“In the year 2016, we take a day off on a Tuesday for a three minute horse race. The Melbourne Cup holiday is outdated and ridiculous.”

Remember, your challenge is not to think about whether you agree or not, but rather focus on thinking of the best possible arguments you could use for supporting, or attacking this statement.
