  16. The Portfolio is due Thursday, class is mandatory. All the items need to be accounted for, but revision can be done even after submitting the assignment.

    Writing from our own point view is significantly weaker then just stating what the argument or evidence suggest. It’s better to state how the claims should make the reader feel, or the affect they should have on others.

    Let readers make their own conclusions. Plant the ideas into the minds of the reader so they can draw the same conclusions as the writer.
