Thesis Statement:  A thesis statement is designed to let the reader know your argument and to keep you focused on that throughout the paper. It mentions the main topic of your paper. I take a position and states an argument. It summarizes evidence you’ll use to support your argument.  

Purpose: Successful writing doesn’t happen overnight, especially when research is required. Writing is a slow process, and this assignment will help you develop an argument, improve your writing process, learn to revise, and think about how arguments change when the genre or audience changes. In order to produce your best writing, you need to edit and revise this paper before turning it in.   

The Process of Developing your Argument: Researchers don’t begin with a thesis; they begin with a question, a hypothesis, or even just a hunch. They then do research to either answer their question or prove their hypothesis. You should do the same. You don’t need to know what you want to argue yet: 1.     You need to choose one of the topics above. 

2.     After you have chosen and done research on the school library site, you can begin to develop your argument and figure out your thesis. 

3.     Next, you should remember what you learned about research and developing arguments in your previous English classes. What is the Rhetorical Situation? Who is your audience? Are the quotes I have chosen from secondary sources relevant to my topic and argument? Requirements: 

·  Six pages (excluding works cited)

· Must include five secondary sources and a works-cited page. Only academic or relevant secondary sources will be considered for this paper. No quotes from summary sites such as SparkNotes, Shmoop, etc.
