In this paper we extend an argumentation scheme for practical reasoning with values based on Action-based Alternating Transition Systems. While the original scheme considers only arguments arising from the immediately next state, our proposals will enable long term considerations to be taken into account. We consider the various reasons for and against performing an action that arise from these longer term considerations, and develop a new set of argumentation schemes for practical reasoning which allows a clearer separation between facts, values and preferences, and more precise targeting of attacks.
