Forum Objective: Create an outline for your Week 5 position paper.

In week 5, you will be submitting a position paper. In this forum, create and post your outline, concept map, or other visual representation for that essay.   Then provide feedback to your peers about their outlines.

Step 1: Read the article  “How to Read Like a Writer,” which is linked here. The author provides good advice on how to look at the writing of others, focusing on what decisions the writers made.  The tips here will help you as you assess your peers’ outlines in this forum, as well as help you build a strong thesis and outline for your position paper.

Step 2:  Post the outline of your week 5 position paper.  To receive full credit, the outline must contain the following:

  • Thesis statement,
  • Topic sentences, and
  • Supporting points for each topic sentence.  

Remember your thesis statement should be a single complete sentence, not a question. Your paragraphs should support that thesis statement. Your purpose in the essay is to persuade.

Please do not make your initial post as an attachment or link.  I may process the forum in Turnitin and attachments cannot be processed.
