6-make a compelling argument, unified with a single controlling idea/thesis tied together with a clear conclusion
7-have an interesting opener and a resonating close
8-be fully developed and well-supported with logical reason, clear evidence, and highly specific detail
9-have an effective title—one that is interesting, representative of the work is about, and creative
