Set 4 - Refining claims

Many people don't write simply and clearly.  Some sentences are really just 'thought bites', some are full of waffle, and others are packed dense with ideas. Argument maps are supposed to make reasoning clear, so we don't want to put unclear text into them!

In this set you will learn how to 'clean up' text so your argument maps contain only clear, solid claims.
