ELG These notes are on fire. ELG starts with the framework as a guide, but then starts building on it and adding to it. So she starts idendentifying the use of links that Myers idenfifies (links to evidence, to give credit, action links, puzzle links) and then adds different links, links with wit, considers some rhetorical use of adjectives, and other consideration.
