One thought on “White Paper- muggastackz”

  1. You’re doing good work here, Muggastackz, but I want to demonstrate the difference between “talks about” language and making specific claims.

    By now I’m sure you know which one is better for all writing, but you may not recognize the difference on your own.

    The Essential Content of the Article: This article provides information regarding social media outlets and how they are the reasons why crimes are becoming more and more prevalent. The idea behind this article is; are crimes rates increasing nationwide because social media allows us to perceive how the crimes are being done. It gave percentages on the difference between crime rates then and crime rates now.

    The bold type above indicates vague “talks about” language that merely names the topics being discussed. This is always a wasted opportunity.

    You might argue back by saying, “But this paragraph is called ‘Essential Content.’ I thought its purpose was to just say what was ‘talked about.'”

    I acknowledge that’s a reasonable position, so permit me to demonstrate how a paragraph can both identify the content and make claims.

    The Essential Content of the Article: This article claims that social media outlets are responsible for the perception that there’s been an increase in crime. Crime rates seem to be increasing, says the article, because social media shows us crimes as they occur.

    I don’t know if what I’ve said here is an accurate reflection of the content of the article, which I haven’t read yet. What I did first was try to deduce what you meant in your Summary and translate it into claims.

    Is this demonstration helpful?

    I very much appreciate that you posted early to give me this opportunity. If your classmates take the time to review your work and these comments, they’ll be much better prepared for their own White Paper first drafts. Thank you, Muggastackz
