Thesis= Topic Sentence (General) *intro*+ Controlling Idea (specific)*conclusion*

[your thesis is developed through the body into a controlling idea; a repeated thesis but in different language, words and explanation]

Conclusion [ includes the controlling idea *thesis* that is more detailed]

Specific- speaks more to what you think about at the end
• You can’t pre-think about the intro and conclusion until you have your body, usually the intro and conclusion is where the weakest parts are in terms of writing.* usually*
General- very basic knowledge that will be developed throught the paper
Introduction-Do not need to contain material
If you want to put in context, statistics, anecdotes have it in the intro to “grab” the reader.

EXAM- tip- well you should have been in class.

Just joking- It will be based on stuff we have read in class.
Hmmmmmmm… what could that be??

I think it will be about that commercial. Perhaps.

After we talked about Academic integrity. Did some group work and talked about academic integrity.

Next Week -paper is due!!! USE TLC!

I don't deserve the credit for that quote. It was Mark Twain who wrote it.
