When preparing your response, support your view with facts from the two videos. The first person to respond will pick a side to support. The next person to respond will constructively disagree with the first person to post. Each person thereafter will disagree with the previous person who posted. Try not to repeat ideas already stated. Therefore, you may want to access resources outside of the class materials to support your position.
