 BUT! In a crossover OER, you aren’t just getting
those for and/or from ONE reading passage, but
TWO.
So how is it done?

 Well the part of your thesis that comes from your
brain must address both passages that are addressed
in the question.
 Then, your evidence needs to support BOTH
passages.
 Essentially you’ll have one evidence sentence for each
passage – instead of two.
 Your insight will need to tie both together.
Okay, that’s fine and dandy but that
doesn’t mean much without an…

 How is this important?
 Without this, what would happen?
 What have we learned?
 Pick the answer you like best.
Now let’s put this together

 What is our thesis?
 How can we combine our evidence with our “why?”
 Which insight best ties BOTH stories together?
