This can be a separate paragraph or part of one body paragraph. Provide an example. Define the example. Of what type is the example? Is the example a character, a person, an author’s viewpoints, or a quote? Define each part of the example. If you are discussing two people who serve as one example, make this distinction clear. Follow up with an explanation of how the example analysis fits within the scheme of what you are discussing. Follow up with an evaluation of the usefulness of this supporting evidence, whether good or bad. Develop a transition statement.
