Question description

Reading Link :

1. Fill in the following templates with material from Martin Luther King's "Letter form Birmingham Jail" 

2. Strive to make the quotations work with them templates; for example, if the template is “X complains that____________,” be sure the quotation you use can in fact be understood as a complaint of some kind. In other words, think about what the verbs are doing; what is the difference between X argues & X suggests? Or X concedes & X agrees?

3. You could just scroll through the essay and pick random quotations, but get in the habit of only using quotations that make a point well. If you find three different sentences that states the same basic information, choose the one you think is the best of the three. (This approach may be altered when you are disagreeing with someone—you might want to choose the weakest; however, remember that when disagreeing with someone’s argument, you must be fair).
