The American people need to x and should do y. It has very specific language—that is, it doesn’t just say “We have a problem…” Instead, it would say, “American consumers have a problem…” It is never a question, but is always a statement. It is never a quote or paraphrase from someone else; it should be your idea. It is always discussable, not an obvious, simple statement. It is a possible answer to your inquiry question. Transitions – Happen between paragraphs, but also BEFORE EACH writing move, like a claim, source use, or example. Mention the idea or topic being explored Mention the writing move that is about to come o “Identity is explored in the essay “Identity” by Jodi Davis...” o “The idea of happiness despite poverty can be seen in my own personal experience of growing up poor...” o “Material culture is a concept widely seen it today’s celebrity culture...”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
