Review
  • Thesis statements and organization

4
Before you can add a quote to an essay, you must
have a thesis statement!
  • A thesis statement explicitly says what your body
    paragraphs are going to say.
  • A thesis statement will look somewhat like a list
  • A thesis statement is at the end of your
    introduction paragraph
  • A thesis statement is the backbone of your entire
    essay. It is super important!

5
For example
  • John Proctor and Reverend Hale each have
    separate motivations that add to the progression
    of the play.
  • Your body paragraphs will talk about
  • John Proctor
  • Reverend Hale

6
Compare and Contrast Essay Organization
  • Subject-by-Subject
  • John Proctor
  • Point 1. Believes in his own reputation
  • Point 2. Feels guilty for his affair
  • Reverend Hale
  • Point 1. Believes reputation of the town
  • Point 2. Feels guilty for his part in the witch
    hangings.

7
Compare and Contrast Essay Organization
  • Point-by-Point
  • Different beliefs about reputation
  • Subject A John Proctor Believes in his own
    reputation
  • Subject B Reverend Hale Believes reputation
    of the town
  • Different reasons for guilt
  • Subject A John Proctor Feels guilty for his
    affair
  • Subject B Reverend Hale Feels guilty for his
    part in the witch hangings.

8
ANOTHER Thesis Statement Example
  • Thomas Jeffersons The Declaration of
    Independence is the most persuasive
    Revolutionary War text because he effectively
    uses parallelism, antithesis, and biblical
    allusion.
  • Your body paragraphs will cover
  • Parallelism in The Declaration of Independence
  • Antithesis in The Declaration of Independence
  • Biblical Allusion in The Declaration of
    Independence

9
CEC Claim Evidence Commentary
  • AKA Making an Evidence Sandwich

10
Now that you have your thesis, you are ready to
write your body paragraphs.
  • You must have evidence in each body paragraph to
    support your main idea (AKA your claim).
  • Dont just throw evidence into a paragraph
    surround it. Make a proof sandwich.
  • Claim
  • Evidence (quote, paraphrase, summary, data, fact,
    etc.)
  • Commentary

11
So now lets make a sandwich!
  • The first part of the body paragraph is your
    CLAIM.

12
Claim
  • The claim is where you state your first point of
    your thesis. Use detail.
  • The claim must connect to your thesis statement.
  • Example Instead of saying There are pros to
    driving at 16. you should say
  • A major advantage in allowing a sixteen year old
    to have drivers license is that it would give
    youths the ability to acquire and maintain a
    job.

13
Quote
  • Use any line from the text as long as it backs up
    your claim.
  • For example,Joshua Linefar states, Over 90
    percent of employers in 2010 only hired students
    if said student had reliable transportation to
    the job site. For unlicensed teenagers, this
    meant the inability to make money (210).

14
Paraphrase
  • For example, over 90 percent of bosses in 2010
    wanted to hire students only if they had reliable
    transportation. For any teenager without a
    license, this meant they would not get the job
    (Linefar 210).

15
But why tho?
  • To choose a good bit o proof, ask yourself the
    following question
  • Significance What is the significance of this
    evidence? Does it actually relate to your claim
    or thesis?

16
Commentary
  • This part explains how your evidence relates to
    your claim
  • Make a BRIIIIIIIIDDDGEEE!!!!!!!!
  • The way the evidence fits is clear and obvious to
    you, however, you need to explain the quote as if
    you are talking to someone who has never read the
    story.

17
Commentary
  • Example
  • A major advantage in allowing a sixteen year
    old to have drivers license is that it would give
    youths the ability to acquire and maintain a job.
    For example, over 90 percent of bosses in 2010
    wanted to hire students only if they had reliable
    transportation. For any teenager without a
    license, this meant they would not get the job
    (Linefar 210). Therefore, if teenagers do not
    have a drivers license, they would be extremely
    less likely to become employed. This may lead to
    trouble in later life due to job inexperience,
    lack of responsibility, and social interaction in
    the workforce. Overall, a teenager having a
    drivers license is not only important in the
    moment, but can also have long term effects.
