- Because you are asked to write an analysis of an argument, you are required to evaluate whether or not Wong’s argument was effective or ineffective. Focus on walking your reader through the choices Wong makes and why she makes them in order to make her argument.
- Intro: strong hook, background context, introduce author & text, identify who the audience is, road map of your analysis, thesis (“In this paper, I will analyze and evaluate…”)
