Using the paragraphs we’ve just looked at as models, draft a paragraph that supports your thesis:
The paragraph needs a point
Quote, summarize, or paraphrase evidence using attributive tags
Explain how the quote, summary, or paraphrase supports the point
Write at least three non-repetitive sentences about how or why the quotation or summary supports the point and the thesis. Explain the support in detail. Don’t just state that the thesis has been supported. Thoughtfully engage with the quotation and share your thoughts in writing.
Draft an in-text citation and draft the connected work cited page entry
In the process of continuing to work on this paper outside of class, I imagine you’ll repeat this process several times.
