The Barclay Barrios formula for synthesizing texts

We’ll be working today with a “formula” for synthesizing texts in your paragraphs. Think of it as another kind of template, this one with the specific purpose of bringing together readings in a way that will help you create a new idea that ┬áin turn brings your project or goal for the essay one step nearer completion.

This formula is explained in the introduction to Emerging (16-17). The version I am providing here comes to us courtesy of UNE’s Director of English Composition, Prof. Cripps.
