They say, I say

To summarize the main argument of this piece is that when we write about someone else’s work, we should make sure to give ourselves the space to state our argument at some point while accessing the other person’s work. The order in which we state our things is also very important. In order to keep the reader interested, it is very important to explain what you are responding to very early in the text to keep the reader interested and not confused. I very much agree with all the arguments this reading made. Thinking back at previous papers I have written I subconsciously already do all of this because I know my paper would not make sense otherwise.
