Elaboration is the key for a good response.

03 Oct

To compose a response you must first identify you feel:

  • I do feel that New York should
  • I do not feel that New York should
  • I can’t believe that New York is stopping
  • I don’t want
  • I think that New York

and be able to provide reasons why you feel the way you do.  To elaborate your response you can:

  • use facts and statistics
  • use sensory details so that the reader can SEE what you are writing about
  • entertain your readers with anecdotes (tell them a story about how ‘that’ happened to ‘??’ )
  • prove a point
  • lend authority or support an argument
  • add emotional depth
  • to make writing personal
  • to enhance understanding
