Analyzing an Author’s Claims :

Discover how to analyze and author's claim. Have you ever wanted to make a statement or have your voice heard? If so, you are not alone. Speakers and writers have been working to have their voices heard by making claims since communication first began. By the end of this tutorial you should be able to define what a claim is, determine an author’s claim, distinguish details in a text that develop an author’s claim, and discriminate details and techniques an author uses to refine a claim. More specifically, you will use these skills in this tutorial to closely examine two texts: one by Sojourner Truth and one by Harriet Beecher Stowe.
