    • Example: “A common misunderstanding about X is that they Y. Instead we should understand Z so that … (a positive outcome can occur).
  • Organize your ideas into paragraphs that each defend a key idea related to the main claim and that build upon each other logically.
  • Include a counterargument from an actual (not made up) source, and respond to it.
  • Write an essay that’s clear, logical, and impactful for the reader.
  • Cite the ideas of outside authors, using MLA in-text citations.
    • Works Cited entries are not required, but include links to your sources on the Works Cited page.
