Today we talked about writing a thesis for this research paper. I gave students a few pointers:
– should encompass the topics from your body paragraphs
– no judgment on topic
– last sentence of your intro to set the stage for your paper
– not set in stone – can change along the way
The thesis must be included in the outline that is due this Friday. Students can upload a typed outline to turnitin.com, or they can turn in a typed or handwritten copy to me at school.
The outline is just a road map for writing the first draft. Students may and probably will have to change their ordering and/or their thesis along the way, and that’s perfectly fine.
