WHAT IS MY THESIS?
As the world may have realized, the U.S. uses both imperialism and globalization in order to mantain its position of superiority in the global community. Though it may appear that these forces may come into conflict, nine out of ten times they work together.
CONVINCED MYSELF OF THIS THESIS?
In the second paragraph it is clear that is the direction this essay is going towards. Connections are made between both in every supporting paragraph even if it seem unnecessary sometimes.
DOES MY EVIDENCE SUPPORT MY THESIS?
Don't know why else it would be there...but if it doesnt support it directly then my evidence highlights a point that is relevant to the development of my thesis/arguement.
WHERE AM I BEING VAUGE?
Most likely in the introductions of my quotations or my explanations that follow them. This is probably because I didn't want to dwell on the actual citation but the point it was supporting. I reasoned that it was obvious how my quotes supported my arguement. . . .but clearly not the case
WHERE IS MY READER CONFUSED?
Hard for me to say because when I read this paper I'm not confused but I guess it can go back to the explainations of my quotations. Some of these concepts may not be THAT easy to grasp so i guess I should spend more timing "babying" my reader.
WHAT HAVE I LEFT OUT?
Limited sources limit the flow of my arguement. The fact that this text has to be used forces my paper to flow in a certain direction... but since I am not an acceptable source of citation or information I guesss I left out REAL citations and sources.
