Cite the author of the work. No comma in between author and page number. Make sure it has a works cited page.

    What image would help you make your claim? What image would help argue your point? An image that will help prove my point will be an image between the difference of an abuse and a friendship relationship between two people. This will show and support that there is a difference in between those two and will show the different intentions between Mayor and Garrett on Maribel.

    What would someone have to do to change your opinion on something? If they have sufficient and accurate evidence with support of examples that there main point of view is hugely significant than mine. For an example, I am writing about that Mayor never sexually assaulted Maribel, and if someone peer reviewed my essay and disagreed, I would need them to provide them a lot of facts and evidence that he really did abused Maribel. The chances of me changing my topic is from none to slim.

    Someone would have to have facts and statistics to support their argument otherwise it’s no use.

    An image that would help me make my claim would be an image about someone who had a traumatic brain injury getting better after getting some physical therapy. An image that would help me argue my point would be one that shows a person after a traumatic brain injury being able to resume their lives close to how it was before the accident.

    What image would help you make your claim? What image would help argue your point?
    I think examples of showing that the american dream is not obtainable.

    What would someone have to do to change your opinion on something?
    They would have to have a strong argument and they would have to support what they are saying with facts and evidence. They would have to find holes in my argument as well.
