State your research project’s major claim (or “thesis”) using the format described in The Craft of Research section 8.2.1: “Although I acknowledge _____, I claim _____, because _____” (see p. 122-124). Then give the most important reasons and evidence you have found for that claim in your research. Be as clear and concise as you can. Try to keep your submission length to 1 page if possible.
For more guidance on formulating a strong thesis, you may wish to visit the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.) page here: https://awc.ashford.edu/writing-tools-thesis-gener… (Note that this page’s “Thesis Statement Model #4: Thesis with Concessions and Reasons” is essentially the same as the format given in The Craft of Research.)
Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
