In Learning Block 5-4 this week, you will find the P.I.E. method for constructing paragraphs in the body of your writing assignment. This is a great way to ensure that you are meeting the requirements of point, information, and explanation.
P – point, clearly stat the point you will be making, this point should be clearly and related to your overall argument and thesis.
I – information, provide information or evidence that supports that point this is where you will cite your sources, using quotations, paragraphs or summaries.
E -explanation, clarify why the information supports your thesis. You should not assume your audience will make the connection on their own.
