In your description, you should identify the types of evidence that the writer uses to justify his or her claims and pay particular attention to the grammatical delivery of such evidence. A successful argument description will not need to evaluate the viability of the writer’s claims, nor should you attempt to draw implications from the reading.

How are they dissimilar?
