1. Did the student expand his or her topic from the four-source essay to the six-source essay? Or did the student narrow his or her topic from the four-source essay to the six-source essay?
2. Compare the four-source essay to the literature review. What challenges do you think the student encountered as he or she proceeded from the four-source essay to the final paper?
3. In the literature review, did the student cite more than one source in each category? Comment on one of the categories and describe how the student synthesized the sources.
