Use your outside evidence drawn from articles, news reports, internet sources, documentaries, interview, etc. to education your readers about the subject. Your main objective for this essay is to explain how your range of evidence works to prove a specific point about your subject.

How do you want readers to think, discuss, or act differently regarding your topic?

Your essay needs to be clear and unified under your thesis. Make sure to include specific

evidence from your outside sources you read, to show how and why your sources support your

thesis. Use your own original ideas about your topic in conjunction with your outside evidence

to support your thesis. Make sure to review the section in your textbook on proper MLA citation

for any quotes or paraphrases you use from your outside source.
