* THESIS & COUNTER paragraphs: a two-point thesis composed of declaration "In this paper I argue in favor of..." followed by two points argument, each followed by an explanation. the explanation must respond these questions: how? why? only one sentence. so, first paragraph should have about five sentences, no much more than that.
* begin each paragraph with "so-and-so" ADVOCATES or "so-and-so" CRITICS.
* internal coherence: check paragraphs 3, 5 for arguments
1& 2 of your thesis and paragraphs 4, 6 for arguments 1 and 2 of the
counter. there must be a correspondence between these paragraphs.
example, if you find anything in paragraph 3 or 5 that doesn't correspond
to your first or second points of your thesis YOU HAVE A PROBLEM OF COHERENCE. please, pay attention to this point!
* COPY AND PASTE PROBLEMS (70% for argument, 30% for quote). here if the paragraph looks too good then it's not good. Write down C/P (copy and paste), "I need your voice." Very likely these paragraphs are copied-and-pasted. Just call it! or I'll call it!
