Teacher’s comment on the essay ‘ immigration’ he needs a final draft for the essay“Two things. First, where are the people? History is the culmination of words and deeds of individual people. Populate everything you do with people. Second, you need to critically analyze the evidence. Not all evidence was created equally. Everything has a bias and the author must identify the bias or even a potential bias. Explain to the readerwhy the bias exists then argue why, nonetheless, that the evidence is still important to support or forward your thesis. A good example is the autobiographical book on a person's role, experiences, and observations as a member of a president's cabinet or advisers. Dick Cheney wrote such a book about his eight years as President Bush's Vice President. The possible bias is that Cheney will put himself in the best light and thus theevidence he produces may be tilted. However, he was the VP for eight years thus his observations are important, even if possibly biased.”
