Try to use examples from the readings, discussing a specific person, text, or event helps (evidence!)

  1. provide a clear thesis statement in your introduction. A thesis needs to stake out your position and should be followed by a sentence briefly summarizing how you intend to prove it.
  2. Use at least three examples as evidence for your argument.  Devote a separate paragraph (at least) to each point.
  • All general statements need to be followed by specific examples or details to elaborate the point.
  • You should offer a brief description of your example to establish the context for your analysis.  Provide who, what, when, where, and how/why.
  • You should explicitly tell me how this supports your argument.
  • You should provide a transition to your next example by showing its connection to the current example.
