These are some things he wants in the essay:
-Do not “sit on the fence.” Take a stand!
-State claims that support your thesis and refute the counterclaims.
– Provide evidence for each claim your essay makes and explain the significance of that evidence.
– Avoid logical fallacies.
-Make sure that each paragraph of your essay contains a topic sentence relating that paragraph to your thesis statement.
– Avoid using the personal pronouns “I” or “me.” They may be used in the concluding paragraph if needed.
-Conclude by restating your thesis, now synthesizing your claims into a concise summary of your case. Do not introduce anything new in your conclusion.
-No dictionaries or encyclopedia can be used as one of your five main sources.
There should be a structure for every supporting claim on the topic:
Intro
Supporting Claim 1
Opposition 1
Rebuttal of Opposition 1
Supporting Claim 2
Opposition 2
Rebuttal of Opposition 2
Conclusion
