Greene and Lidinsky present four helpful models for formulating a working thesis (see pages 141 to 148 in From Inquiry to Academic Writing):
These thesis models are certainly not the only options available to you, but they do offer ways to enter an academic conversation and make a contribution that extends beyond merely summarizing or echoing someone else’s ideas.
In your initial post, do the following:
In your follow-up posts, respond to at least two classmate’s posts by doing both of the following:
For all references, use an appropriate form of documentation (MLA, APA, or another standard academic style discussed in Easy Writer.)
DUE: Thursday, 27 June by Noon CST.
In Essay #2, write an essay that makes a thesis-based argument about education. Your essay must respond specifically to at least one of the assigned articles from Ch. 14.
These articles are “Who Are You and What Are You Doing Here? A Word to the Incoming Class,” by Mark Edmundson, and “How Big-Time Sports Ate College Life,” by Laura Pappano; these essays are found on pages 405-426 of your course text.
You will choose the audience for your essay, but remember: your job is to “enter the conversation” about education begun by your sources.
Note that this essay is a logical follow-on to your first essay. That is, you will be continuing to discuss the topic of the essay you selected to summarize in Essay #1. Only in this essay, you will be adding your ideas on the subject.
Your essay should include all of the following features:
Length/Due Date: approximately 800-1,000 words, due Sunday midnight Central Standard Time (CST).
Style/Format: This, as all essays in EN106, should be formatted in a standard scholarly format. (Most students follow MLA or APA guidelines, which are outlined in Easy Writer.) No matter what format you follow, be sure to do the following:
References: Your essay must use at least one source — the article from Ch. 14 that has begun the conversation. Most likely, you will also refer to additional outside sources. For each source you cite or reference in your essay, include in-text citations, using MLA or APA guidelines.
File format: Please submit your essay as a .doc or .docx file. These formats are available in most word processors, including Google Docs and Open Office, and will ensure that your instructor is able to comment on your work.
Works Cited/References: Please create an appropriate bibliography that lists each source you cite or reference in your essay. Use MLA or APA guidelines for your bibliography.
Titles: Include a descriptive title at the beginning of your essay that tips your readers off to your thesis. Do not format your title with quotation marks, boldface, underlining or italics. Quotation marks or underlining are only appropriate if the title borrows words from another source.
Deadline: Sunday “Noon”
