Combining multiple sources


Paper details

there are two essays in the archive files and the writer will have to find a way to talk about both of this essay in one topic

if the writer is going to cite things from the reading material my professor would like it to be, the quote from material then the page number it’s from.

Use the writing process to write an essay; it should include an introduction, a body and a conclusion. Some paragraphs should be more developed (longer) than others, depending on the purpose of the paragraph. For example body paragraphs generally need more evidence (development) to be convincing. Also think about the type of evidence you can use to develop your ideas, including personal experience, expert opinion, and organizational modes like description, narration, definition, comparison/contrast, process, examples, cause and effect persuasion. See in the two essays we’ve recently read or to any of the texts we’ve read this semester

In Addition, you should ask yourself about any connections or relationships you see in the two essays. Then use two of the essays to use as evidence to support your own thesis or claim.
One of your goals in this essay is to show you can synthesize (show relationships/between/among) more than one source that you use as evidence to support your main idea (thesis or claim). Another way to use two or more texts is to use one as evidence to support your idea and use the other to deal with counter-argument. In short, you must show that you can use academic conventions to integrate outside sources into your own essays.

You should still focus your ideas on two parts: 1) Providing context by introducing the text, summarizing it, quoting from it and analyzing the author’s ideas, and by 2) offering a clear transition to your own contemplations.

To do this, you might choose one idea from the essays to respond to. For example, you could disagree with a central idea and explain why you disagree. Or you could endeavor to further explain some central idea of the essay. For example, you could use your own experience with resistance similar to hooks’ to make your own comment.

Your essay should imitate some of the techniques the authors use in their essays. For example, like hooks, you should feel free to use the first person, “I” to tell a personal story. But then you must relate that story to some larger, more universal idea, like resistance or propaganda.

To create a clear a narrowed idea (thesis), you might use “Stabilizing the Text” and “Mobilizing the Text,” the comprehension questions that appear after the reading.
