This week, we’re in the early stages of planning for our final essay. You may have already selected a topic. If you haven’t, select a topic for our persuasion essay about which you are passionate. Click on the link below for a list of approved topics.
After selecting your topic and watching this week’s lecture on thesis statements, post a working thesis statement in the discussion forum. Later in the week, be sure to comment on classmates’ thesis statements as well as answer any clarifying questions students have about your work.
Peer critique is of great value to the writer and reader. The writer benefits from another set of eyes and the reader is able to learn a variety of ways in which to provide feedback. Your review is meaningful and important.
