for the outside evidence documents, does it have to be specifically a document? could it just be an event that’s related to my prompt/thesis?
I think you might be getting two things confused. The outside evidence points come from using things that are not mentioned in the docs anywhere to strengthen your argument, whereas document usage is all about tying docs to your thesis. Stick around for the second half of the stream when Mr. Lagerwey will explain this in more detail!
