Time to Write
It’s your turn now to wrap up your research process and start thinking about how you’ll use sources and which sources you’ll use. Remember, you want to ensure you have quality sources, but those sources can come from your library’s databases, the web, and even interviews, if your professor allows for them.
It’s time to start putting your argument together, and your sources are going to be a key part of that. Before you draft, make some notes about your sources and share with your professor and classmates for feedback. Do these sources seem credible? Will these sources fit your purpose? How will these sources help your appeals to ethos, pathos, and logos?
You have a lot to think about as you make decisions about your sources, but good planning about your sources will make drafting your essay so much easier.
