Man, when you read the insrutions for the essay. I also created a outline for you. That was after a meeting with the professor, the prof really cares about argument+analysis+ using quotes. The best to put in quote into sentence, combine and then analyz it. For those people, prof gives book about each individual’s thinking. Make sure the argument and text quotes are appropriate to answer the question. Sentence level equals or better than my previous essay in her class( HZ sample, that was A essay) So, see my style.
