Academic dishonesty/honesty– big issue
Introduction and conclusion
High school - Burger – thesis, develop, conclusion
Not the best way to do it
Not the only way to write an essay
Thesis = Topic – general “controlling idea”, organized thought
Intro – thesis – different from conclusion, general
- Do not repeat
- The idea changes by the end
- Develop idea
- Think about what you are doing
- Present it in different ways
- Don’t need sources
- Do not need attention “grabbers”
- Just open the door know who your audience is
- Anecdotes, personal
Conclusion – thesis - specific,
- Ideas are more focused
- Don’t need sources for either
- Refers to the points in the body
- Short in a sentence or two
(Body - intro or conclusion)
Next week - exam topic and how to write exam
