  • When writing the Support for Argument section, the student should be very concise in their writing.Take the author’s argument and explain how the author supported that argument in the book.Don’t retell parts of the book.This section requires you to look at the big picture and determine the author’s overall approach to convincing the reader of their argument.
  • The final section, Evaluation and Conclusion, requires the student to evaluate whether or not the author’s writing convinced you of their argument.This section should be brief, concise, and leave no doubt in a reader’s mind as to the value of the book.
