Does your article provide evidence for any of your opinions and arguments? -Integrate the relevant evidence or data into your own opinions and arguments and explain its significance

Does your article take a position counter to any of your opinions and arguments? -Strengthen your own opinions and arguments by explaining and providing evidence of why you disagree with them
