Thesis essay writing homework help
· NEXT week you will be creating a formal thesis/outline for the upcoming essay. You are welcome to use your journals as a basis for the essay!
For example, maybe you plan to expand journal 1 into a complete essay; or perhaps you are going to use journal 2 to expand into a complete essay. Or…perhaps you plan to take elements of both journals to create your essay. The choice is yours!
Whichever direction you plan to take though…you MUST have a clear and detailed formal thesis and outline:) Below you will find the instructions on how to create this document.
Before you do so, please take a few moments to also review all information on thesis statements (see other items in HL). Your thesis statement should be at least 3-4 sentences in length.
· Thesis and Outline
The thesis should be two-three sentences at the top of your page that states the main point of your essay. Try not to announce your topic (In this essay I will …). Instead, just state the overall main idea of your essay.
I cannot emphasize enough the use of our textbook regarding thesis/outlines. Be sure to review the information contained there (however, you will be creating a 3-4 sentence thesis, not a one sentence thesis). Look in the index under each of these words. They are discussed in numerous ways in numerous chapters.
The outline should also map out the examples you'll use inside the body paragraphs to support your ideas. (Each body paragraph should be a Roman numeral, and the details in that paragraph will be capital letters.) Get as specific as you can at this point to make the first draft easier to write.
· **Remember, the thesis and outline are the road map to the essay. Be sure to offer as much detail as possible.
**Do not approach this as a 5 paragraph essay!!! You will probably need 6, 7. 8, etc., paragraphs – depending on what you plan to cover. Dismiss any prior information in your head that all essays follow a 5 paragraph model:)
