supporting points, is it in your opinion? and how would you find the good supporting points?
Paragraph response, what would make a good one?

Now please don't think this is some stupid exercise you can skip....this is a very essential college skill, and a life skill. Folks will snow you with words, the educated person can summarize and outline arguments in their mind rather quickly. Analysis is a valuable skill.
These are standard processes for writing an essay:
