Evidence-Based Argument Checklist

 Early in the piece, I offer a clear and interesting claim about the text.

 The claim is arguable—someone could use evidence to offer a different interpretation or disagree with me.

 I use lots of direct evidence from the text to support my claim.  The evidence I use shows that I know the text well and have thought about it more than just a superficial reading.  I organize my evidence into meaningful points and explain the evidence.  I make sure the reader understands why the evidence supports and advances my claim.
