Outline and thesis is due this time but then will need a paper.
Develop a Thesis

The last part of your thesis should include a “seed” of thought to indicate where you stand on the question. For an example of a thesis, please see Guidelines for Writing Research Papers located in the Course Materials folder.

Writing Your Paper
Your final paper should follow the format outlined below:
Body – 5 pages in length
References page – in APA format. See note below.
(Paper focuses on one main idea.)
Thesis is clearly stated for the intended audience. Thesis is pretty clear for the intended audience, but needs sharpening. Thesis is stated, but the thinking is fuzzy, resulting in a disorganized paper. Thesis is not stated though one might guess what it is from other sentences in the paper. Thesis is not stated, and it is difficult to find any meaning in the sentences. Or many meanings are stuck in at random.
Organized Outline that Leads to Unity and Coherence
Paper is organized around a unified outline that develops the thesis. (See sample below.)
Opening “grabs attention” and leads into thesis.
Thesis contains the seeds of all of the key points in the paper.
Ideas and examples develop out of thesis bringing coherence (ideas follow a logical order and are connected to each other).
Transitions clearly show relationship between ideas and thesis
Conclusion echoes or summarizes the thesis and leaves the intended reader satisfied.
Same as A, but thesis needs sharpening and hence does not guide the outline as clearly. Opening leads into thesis but is abstract. Most of the ideas and examples in the outline develop and support the thesis. One idea needs tightening. Transitions connect most ideas with the thesis.
Most ideas and examples follow in a logical order and are connected to each other bringing some unity and coherence. The conclusion summarizes main points, but needs polish.
Paper is disorganized because though there is an outline, it mixes up ideas and thoughts. Unity and coherence are lost. Paper tries to open with a thesis, but it is fuzzy and hence does not direct the development of thought. Transitions connect some ideas to the thesis. At least one example is inserted, but is sketchy. There are occasional lapses in logical order and connection of ideas. Short conclusion that does not really tie things together.
