    Part of grading is how well we can deliver our point without taking the “long way.”
    Look at BeezKneez for a good example of an in-text citation
    The point of the rebuttal is to give credit to a fair point contrary to your own and explain wy even though there is credible, your point is still superior.
    If we have questions about the portfolio we can check the portfolio tab that was newly added to see if we are missing anything.
    If we edit out 3000 word paper we must do so in the original post because there is no actual rewrite for it.

    -rebuttals refute evidence and don’t just claim that most readers agree or disagree
    -annotated bibliography is an indication of your relationship to your sources and how you used them
    -the portfolio contents include the research paper, visual rewrite, annotated bibliography, set reflection, and two argumentative essays and their rewrites
    -use specific examples such as visual effects to draw reader in instead of saying fluff and repeating yourself
    -the background of an annotated bib has to focus on what you learned from the amount of context you used
