Where do you put sourcing?

so say i’m writing one of my body paraghaps. would i do it like, evidence from doc first, then show how this evidence ties into my thesis, and then sourcing? or would i do evidence from doc, then sourcing, and then analysis and tie-back to thesis?

So it really depends on how you are writing, and what the topic is about. I tend to do sourcing the second way, that way I make sure the reader is left with a concluding topic, that is related back to my thesis. I think it also looks better if you provide evidence and then source, and then tie it back into your thesis, that way you make sure the reader knows what you are trying to say.
