    • Paragraphs do not all fit together neatly to support the thesis.
    • Chosen order of paragraphs does not show any purpose and/or paragraphs do not transition smoothly from one idea to another.

The Body
  • Start with your 1st body paragraph. After the topic sentence, label each successive sentence as having one of the following purposes:
    • providing textual evidence to support TS
    • developing evidence – answering the “SO WHAT?” of why the evidence is relevant to your TS and/or the argument you are making in this paragraph
    • providing context – relevant plot summary necessary for understanding the evidence or your paragraph’s general argument
  • Sentences:
    • lack purpose, contain irrelevant information
    • are not clearly connected to previous ideas (building on TS)
textual evidence
Textual Evidence

Highlight / Underline all your evidence.

  • Evidence:
    • is insufficient
    • is too general, lacks specificity
    • is not well-chosen, demonstrates lack of insight
    • no use of short, selective quotes integrated into sentences
  • Development of evidence:
    • is absent, leaving the reader to do the work of making connections between the evidence and the argument
    • is limited/confusing/unclear, needs further explanation
    • is obvious, demonstrates lack of insight

the conclusion
The Conclusion
  • merely summarizes
  • does not provide a “SO WHAT?” that leaves the reader feeling the writer’s analysis was somehow relevant
  • attempts a “SO WHAT?” but does not achieve clear explanation or lacks insight

Conclusions can be brief: 2-3 sentences is sufficient.
