Could you but outside evidence into a separate paragraph that just connects to your thesis that is not in any of the documents?
You can separate outside evidence into another paragraph, but with the time constraints, I would recommend connecting your outside evidence to your documents as it is a more efficient method. However, if you feel uncomfortable using that method, write a separate paragraph to include outside evidence!
Okay, thank you!
Also, do you need to have a complex topic sentence or could you have a simple one or just start with the document if you don’t have enough time?
