M1.3 Preliminary Thesis Development (week 2)
You have your choice of topics to write about in this course. This discussion looks forward to the next module’s written assignment, which is to write an approximately 5-page thesis-support essay. No research is required – you can write about any topic that interests you and about which you think you can create a clear thesis and details to develop that thesis.
How to Proceed
Post either the topic and/or the thesis that you’re considering for Module 2’s essay. Include any questions that you might have about these as a writer. Label your post [my name’s] working thesis. Others will respond to your topic/working, so that there is one discussion thread per student.
Then respond to at least 2-3 other working thesis posts, offering your ideas about turning a topic into a thesis, or about developing a working thesis.
