Graduate Writing II: Intermediate Composition Skills

To generate analysis, scholarly writers ask themselves questions about the evidence, such as What does this piece of evidence mean? How does it bolster my argument? How does this piece of evidence connect to another piece? What do I want my readers to understand or “get” from this evidence?

In this Discussion, let’s practice answering these questions by evaluating and analyzing the evidence from Week 3.

Check out this video from the Walden Writing Center for tips and tricks as we analyze and evaluate research information.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the Week 3 Discussion for your paraphrased evidence as well as any feedback received.
  • Review the Learning Resources on analysis.
  • Recall the argument you are making.
