my claims

Here are my claim. I might move the analysis of zamyatin to the beginning? I don't know... tell me what yall think.

1. Analyze how D-503 thinks and why he thinks that way with a pentad.
2. D-503 uses the idea of illness to give rational explanations for his feelings.
3. Explain why his idea of illness is a social construction.
4. Analyze what Zamyatin was trying to communicate to his fellow authors through the idea of illness.
5. Analyze what might have driven Zamyatin to write about this based on what was going on during his time.

Wow, your points are very thought out and strong. Very good!
1. This is good, maybe you cuold try to tie in some more areas of the pentad.
2. This obviously is a very good point. Why do you think that he does that?
3. Why do you think its a social construction?
4. And what was he trying to communicate?
5. This is a good question to answer too.

Overall, good points and you seem to have a good grasp on it. Just answer a few questions and its good to go! :)

These are some good points that you have. My concerns for them are the way you have them laid out. It sounds more of you just answering the questions when it should be more of the ideas tieing in together. Just be sure to explain them all the way, so it will sound like a persuasive argument. For example when you say "Analyze" and "Explain" make sure you show us how it is analyzed and not just telling us that you will analyze it. Overall these are some good ideas but you would have to fully explain them and give a lot of evidence and support for us to see your point. I hope you found this helpful. Good luck!
