Building your arguments and conclusions

Ask yourself these questions as you incorporate your course readings and external sources into your Book Analysis and Critical Thinking assignments to build your evidence, arguments, and conclusions:

Does your source include examples, concepts, or terminology that help illustrate any of your arguments? -Integrate these into your analysis and explain why they support your argument

Does your source raise questions you hadn't considered or make claims that shape your thinking? -Integrate these into your arguments to develop and focus them further 

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

Does your source take a position counter to any of your arguments? -Include these sources to strengthen your own arguments by explaining and providing evidence of why you disagree with them

What relationships do you see between your sources? -Integrate the arguments and evidence from your sources together to use them as building blocks for your own conclusions and arguments
