Is establishing credibility or an appeal to logic a strategy you can say in the thesis?

For instance, “The author strengthens her argument through direct quotes, appeal to logic, and establishing credibility.”

Yes, but always always always make sure in the thesis statement to link to a purpose using phrases like “in order to”

The author uses direct quotes, appeals to logic, and appeals to credibility in order to achieve his/her purpose of [xyz] and convince the audience to [xyz]

Got it, thanks so much!
