Which is better--the movie version of The Outsiders or the book?
Claim: The movie version of The Outsiders is better than the book.
Reason: The movie is better because some of the most important parts are more dramatic.
Evidence: When Dally is shot by the police, the police shoot multiple times--just like in the book. But in the movie you see him try to get up and move across the park. Then the boys show up and are sad.
Reasoning: This evidence shows that a dramatic part of the movie made the scene more powerful.
Counterargument: Some might say that the book is more dramatic because Johnny’s death scene takes a little more time and there is more conversation between Johnny, Dally, and Pony.
Audience: your classmates
