Essay Section: Supporting Evidence (Examples)
Providing examples is another level within the analysis process. To move from mere generalization into the arena of the particular, you will need to add examples to further elaborate on a point you have made. Examples add more substance to your analysis. By adding examples, your professor perceives that you are able to develop a topic sentence, incorporate quotes, and match your example to the two.
On this level, you are learning how to synthesize information and how to distinguish between what doesn’t fit and what does. Your examples must never be off the subject. They must always be relevant to the subject and to your topic.
