To generate analysis, scholarly writers ask themselves questions about the evidence, such as What does this piece of evidence mean? How does it bolster my argument? How does this piece of evidence connect to another piece? What do I want my readers to understand or “get” from this evidence?
In this Discussion, you practice answering these questions by analyzing the evidence from Week 3.
