6- Content: Each paper must begin with a strong introduction, including a clear thesis statement that presents your argument and a corresponding outline of your paper to guide the reader. As you write the response paper, briefly summarize only the ideas which you think are most relevant to the topic, present your argument and the logical/evidentiary points in its favor, identify other authors’ implicit assumptions or perspectives (if using them), and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your argument in comparison with others. The purpose of your paper is to take a definitive position, which you then support with substantive argumentation and sound reasons. End your paper with a strong conclusion, summarizing your work and the position you have taken.
