The "Wow Factor"
The wow-factor is something that students develop before writing (or before presenting) about something they've read. It's an element of their thinking that begins in the reading process and continues in their writing, making their audience say "Wow!"
Tutors who specialize in the wow-factor help students draw conclusions from their reading so they can "wow" their audience in the following ways:
- Come up with challenging or engaging conclusions
- Create sound arguments from available evidence
- Create vivid analogies
- Develop sensitivity to other points of view
