Thesis: Visual Models : Visual Models Good Title : Good Title The title sets the tone for the whole paper Need a catchy grabbing title If it is boring or there is no title your audience could lose interest without even reading a word of your actual paper Your paper is separate from your title in the sense that your first sentence does not answer or continue from your title Persuasive Thesis : Persuasive Thesis Your thesis is a complex sentence stating your stance on the issue/topic it follows the form: Although + Con, Pro + Because + Reason EXAMPLE: Although many students enjoy the freedom of choosing their daily wardrobe public schools should require student uniforms because doing so would foster an environment that enhances education. Good Thesis : Good Thesis It should be: Specific Third person, or first person plural Firm/Strong (stand) States the opposition (although) Respectively Truthfully Provable Arguable Focused Open Universal Fresh Manageable (according to length restrictions) Reasonable True (at least some of the time) Personally relevant (angle) Must find a way to care Mature Intro Paragraph : Intro Paragraph Your intro should grab your audiences attention, but it should not be the whole paper It should make your audience want to read more The beginning must feel like a beginning, not just like an accident. It should be at least a full paragraph that lets your reader gently into the subject and culminates with your thesis Usually there is no cons in the intro, if it is conventional intro You can have a con intro if you decide to use that model for your essay Body Paragraphs : Body Paragraphs Arrange your points in order of increasing interest Be specific Use your research Use parenthetical notations You need body paragraphs to amplify and fulfill your thesis and research Good Conclusion : Good Conclusion Does not introduce any new information Sums up the entire paper The “so what?” of your paper The reason for writing Leaves an impression on your audience Revise and Edit : Revise and Edit Be sure to reread your essay You can even have others read it and give you feedback You could give yourself a break from it and then go back and read it with a refreshed mind Make sure your spelling and mechanics are correct Revise at least three times Publish : Publish Print everything and make sure it looks professional Make sure to include your Works Cited Make sure it is in the correct format: MLA Link to Sample Essay : Link to Sample Essay Questions : Questions What is the thesis?
