Commentary and Evidence

What are the main questions to ask yourself and answer in your essay to get the 4 points for commentary and evidence?

So I was told to follow these 5 steps

  1. Mention quote
  2. explain it
  3. analyze for writer
  4. analyze for audience
  5. and why its persuausive
    someone correct me if im wrong

That is a great guideline. Always make sure that you include a “wrapper” sentence. Before you end a paragraph directly connect back to your thesis statement.
