Another aspect that we’ve heavily dwelled on in regards to strengthening our writing was the concept of organizing your overall argument. Just as with the BEAM method, this resource from Purdue OWL offered straightforward steps such as including your claim, data, warrant, backing, counterclaim etc that was hugely constructive.
Of the many different strategies to writing, BEAM is probably one of the most significant. With the use of this template, we (the students) were able to identify the different types of sources and how to implement them into our writing exactly. It offered simple steps that were easy to follow but yet extremely crucial.
