How to get a 3

what are the main basic things we need to have to get a 3

  1. Get the thesis point! (In one sentence, clearly state the author’s last name, purpose, and the 2-3 writing choices you’ll analyze).

  2. In evidence/commentary:

  • identify the most important writing choices the author has made to impact the target audience
  • choose 2 quotes per body paragraph that demonstrate the writing choice
  • for each quote, write several sentences that analyze WHY the author made this writing choice and HOW it would impact the audience
