WRIT105 - Martin/Kalter

Use Literature to Inform and Support Your Claim

Once you have found sufficient background information, search for literature to analyze in order to help inform and support the central claim of your argumentative essay. Remember - don't simply seek out literature that matches your point of view; instead engage with a wide variety of educated opinions and viewpoints and use those to formulate your own argument.
