Questions to ask yourself before you turn in the rough draft are
Does each paragraph begin with a topic sentence previewing the purpose and main idea of the paragraph?
Is there enough evidence (research, expert opinion, facts, statistics, data, etc.) supporting the main idea of EACH body paragraph?
Are all the sources used throughout your essay included on the Works Cited page?
Have you added a concluding paragraph?
