What is evidence?

and...

How can you provide evidence in your essays?


Let's discuss how to incorporate evidence into your essays.

  • Every argument must be "backed up" with evidence.
    • So, for instance in Essay Q #1 on your review, what would be examples (evidence!!!) of American exceptionalism in art? Architecture? Language?
  • Remember: If you are making a statement that is debatable, you have to provide reasons (evidence!!!) for making your statement. This is what you are doing for WP4?.
