Ok, this is the last one! It is still about the Apple Watch series 3, if you want to do the primary source as a review from me, that would work great, I am an Apple Watch owner and I love it. Also, if you want my login on for Rio Learn so you can go on there and read all the info for the lesson, let me know. Its still the same as the last one I gave you if you still have it.
- Essay length: The essay should be at least 7 paragraphs.

Gather your sources. Begin this process by organizing the information you already have. You will want to include the article from Lesson 6 and your primary source. Since this essay requires the use of TWO secondary sources, use the Rio Library or the Internet to find an appropriate article to add to your approach.
â€¢ Organize your information. As you review the materials you have gathered, begin to organize them by theme. What are the common elements? Are there clear areas of similarity or difference that you can use to organize your essay?
â€¢ Analyze and evaluate your information. Once you’ve identified some common themes, or some other strategy for organizing your resources, it is time to think critically about them.
- First, you will want to analyze your sources. How are the elements of the sources working to make their main points?
- Next, you’ll want to evaluate your sources. How effective are the different sources in making their main points? Do some do a better job than others? What elements are especially effective or ineffective?
- Lastly, you’ll want to connect these sources with other information you already know. This critical thinking strategy is called inference. What can you logically infer about this topic from these sources?
â€¢ Pre-draft. You already started this in Lesson 6, but if you changed your topic or were asked to reevaluate your thesis, you might consider a new graphic organizer or a basic free write to get into writing mode.
