As you know by now, it is difficult to capture a truly interesting argument in one sentence.
- After your first attempt, spend a few minutes exploring new ideas.
- Could someone make a reasonable argument against your thesis? If not, focus on clarifying your point.
- What evidence will you use to support your thesis? If evidence is hard to find, you may need to shift your argument.
- After answering these questions, revise your working thesis.
Then share your working thesis with your teacher.
