Look at the sample Point and Information below. Then, write an explanation to match the Point and explain the Information by following the steps outlined below.


Often students struggle to succeed because they do not believe in their own capabilities.


In his article “Professor Calls New Mindset Idea Cancerous,” Luke Johnson, a professor at San Diego State University, argues that students at all levels do not receive enough encouragement from their professors. He asserts, “Even among [the] most esteemed masters and doctoral students, they have rarely (if ever) been told they have ability, that they are smart, they are brilliant. In fact, these messages are so foreign to them that they often receive them as disingenuous because they have never been told before that they are worthwhile, remarkable, and capable” (4).


Write an explanation that explains the quote and connects in back to the point.

To do so, follow these steps.

First, define the key terms. If you know what they mean, you can write it down. If not, please look the word up in the dictionary.
Second, answer the following questions about the quote:
Third, rephrase the quote in your own words. I suggest that you read it one more time and then write down what you think it says without looking at it (pretend you have to tell a classmate what the quote said)
Fourth: Explain the significance of the quote. How does the quote connect to the point? How does the quote prove the point?
Lastly, put step 3 and 4 together. That is your explanation!

What does this quote make you think of? Can you connect what the author is saying to anything you have seen in your life? (this is just to help you think about the quote; you would not include personal explanation in the actual explanation).

Do you agree or disagree with the quote and why?

How does the quote relate to the Point?

Is there something here you do not understand (words, ideas, etc.)?

Is there a question you would like to pose to the author?
