https://www.readwritethink.org/professional-development/strategy-guides/developing-evidence-based-arguments-31034.html

Educators in many disciplines may be interested in Developing Evidence-Based Arguments from Texts, a strategy guide from ReadWriteThink. Constructing a logical and well-supported argument is one of the fundamental skills needed to write a successful paper and it is something that many students struggle with when learning how to write. This strategy guide is intended for use with students in grades 6-12, but instructors and teaching assistants at the undergraduate level may also find helpful teaching tips here. It includes multiple suggestions for explaining the difference between argument and persuasion, as well as downloadable handouts, links to sample essays for illustration, and links to related ReadWriteThink resources. This strategy guide was published by the National Council of Teachers of English and authored by Scott Filkins, a high school English and math teacher in Champaign, Illinois.

ProtonVPN
https://www.protonvpn.com

ProtonVPN is a virtual private network service produced by the company that runs the ProtonMail high-security email service. ProtonVPN is similarly designed to be a high-security VPN suitable for journalists and political activists. The service exclusively uses ciphers designed for Perfect Forward Secrecy, which means that a compromised encryption key cannot be used to decrypt past sessions. ProtonVPN’s parent company is based in Switzerland, a country with famously strict privacy laws. Switzerland is not a member of either the five eyes or the fourteen eyes global surveillance networks. ProtonVPN also includes a kill switch feature that will disable internet service entirely when the VPN connection unexpectedly drops. Many other VPN systems react to a connection drop as if it were a deliberate shutdown of the VPN and begin sending traffic over the regular internet. ProtonVPN’s free tier allows access from a single device from up to 3 countries. Paid plans offer more devices and higher speeds. Client software is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux computers as well as Android and iOS mobile devices. This will be added to World Wide Web Reference Subject Tracer™.
