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, 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.
