This week you will stake a claim about your research project and back it with reasons and evidence. Use the diagram on page 115 to present your major claims, evidence, and reasons to the class (your reader/audience).

Note: you do not have to recreate the diagram, but you must respond to the embedded prompts (“I claim that…because of these reasons…which I base on this evidence”). Be clear and specific in your response to each of these prompts.
