constructing an argument 1

  1. In one paragraph, state your claim, show evidence, explain the evidence, connect it to the claim, and connect the claim to the overall position. Be sure to format any sources you cite in accordance with the determined style. Include at least two pieces of evidence to support the claim.
  2. List the same information in bullets as you might for a presentation. Include a claim, evidence, and a connection.
  3. State a claim that counters your claim or a strong claim in support of another position, and discuss how it could be deconstructed and refuted.
