  • Q10

    Why may a Narrow-Wide focus change be more effective in a short essay?

    You may use a specific example to highlight a key challenge or issue that applies to a larger context. This is more effective in a shorter essay, given the typically broader nature of short essays, as they do not allow for in-depth analysis. 

    Short essays are generally broad, so you want to get to the essay as quickly as possible.

    Personal stories are always a good idea, so you should start with a narrow personal story and then you must transition to broader scope as you started narrow.

  • Q13

    Why should you be careful in how you present your evidence?

    Evidence is always simple, so I need to showcase it

    Evidence presentation changes how its viewed; I can present/manipulate the evidence to support my points over others.

    Evidence provides support for my points, but not all evidence supports my points, so I should change evidence so ALL evidence supports my points.

    Readers may not be fully aware of the context and cannot connect evidence to points themselves.
