Outside evidence

when adding the outside evidence should i start the sentence by saying " an additional piece of evidence" or should i just find a way to add it to my paragraph

You can do either! Frankly, it’s better writing to find a smoother transition but the AP reader will give you the point either way if you explain the evidence well enough :smiley: my AP history teacher always used to say for sourcing that “the historical context of this is…” or whatever sourcing because even though it’s bad writing it gets the point across. It’s really your choice!

There is no need to specifically state that it is outside evidence! Your exam reader will recognize it as additional information. Good luck tomorrow!
