Quality of Analysis /40 Criteria: – It needs to be an analysis rather than merely a description of the facts, and present some kind of argument on your chosen topic. – A synthetic use of texts is necessary; don’t use one source per topic. Be sure you engage with the authors’ arguments (what are they? Do you agree?), not just presenting facts. – Is there an overarching argument being presented, to which each paragraph/section contributes? Are your claims being supported by evidence, examples, sources, etc.? – If you present a clear thesis; follow a well defined road map; and analyze the information you are presenting, you will do well.
