Transcript of Source-Based Essay Writing

Conclusion
Do not refer to any sources
Do not introduce new information
Link back to introduction
Need only be one sentence if you are pressed for time
Introduction
Rephrase question in your own words
TAKE A STAND!
clearly convey your point of view
state counter-argument
Do not refer to any sources
Main Body
Logical paragraphs, each with a point being made
May use more than one source per paragraph
try group corresponding sources to show key understanding and earn more points
Remember to reference sources!
eg: (Source 5)
Always provide a FOCUS SENTENCE after you have made a point!
refer back to question
REMEMBER:
Always include a counter-argument!
Transitional words to assist in conveying your argument -
however
on the other hand
yet
nevertheless
moreover
Main Body cont.
Use SPECIFIC evidence from each source to substantiate your argument
All sources must be used unless stated otherwise
DO NOT SIMPLY ANALYSE THE SOURCES IN A LIST!
this becomes monotonous and lacks focus
TIP!
Use MEAL format:
M = main point being made
(skeleton)
E = evidence from source/s
(SPECIFIC)
A = analysis
(flesh out your point with facts)
L = link back to topic

(FOCUS)
