Reasoned Dissent is a respectful and honest disagreement. First, you must identify who/what you are disagreeing. Next, you must identify yourself and explaining why you disagree. After this you have to explain exactly what you are disagreeing with. (This you can use a quote for, just make sure you cite it). When it comes to the book The Grapes of Wrath the reasoned dissent is a part of the overall theme of the book. The Dust Bowl was a devastating event for those who lived during this time and Steinbeck does a good job of explaining and detailing what life was like for these people. A lot of things just were not fair, hence his reasoned dissent.
