Framing an artifact has four purposes:
- Analyze the key components
- Point out rhetorical moves that we can use in our own writing
- Make connections (if possible) with other texts we have read
- How does this text shed light on previous texts? How does it give new insights into previous texts? How does it disagree or agree with previous texts?
- Spark discussion with insightful questions & provocative quotations from the text
