Using the PEE method for supporting academic arguments

"The rest of your essay is an explanation of each of your points summarised in paragraph one. Every point will have its own paragraph. Each paragraph will include P-E-E:

>the POINT you are making

>EVIDENCE - an example of why you are right (such as a quotation or an observation from a specific point in the text)

>EXPLANATION - what the quotation or observation means, why it explains your point, and anything else that is interesting about what is happening in the quotation"

(BBC)

Rhetorical functions in academic writing: Introducing

"The purpose of the introduction is to show your reader what you are doing in your writing. It is also helpful to explain why you are doing it and how you are doing it.

In many parts of your writing - but especially in introductions - you may need to provide background information and introduce new concepts or ideas and provide a description of how you are going to proceed in the rest of your writing.

In the following text, after giving some background information to justify the research, sentence 10 introduces the rest of the report:"

(Andy Gillett)
