Can you please go over sourcing in detail. I know the rubric, but can you go iver on how to source step by step?
Welcome! Ok, for sourcing, think about why someone wrote the document and how that is relevant to your argument.
Why does the President of the US cover SO much in the state of the union (it doesn’t matter which President or which SOTU). The Constitutional impetus is that the President shall from time to time address Congress. Ok, but typically the President uses this address to persuade the public (especially since it’s televised) and Congress about policies the President may want to implement or change. It’s a great persuasive speech, even if the original intent is “informative”
Oh okay, that really helps. Can you clarify how to connect back to your arguments. So, you identify the HAPP but how do you tie it back
