The Book is The Craft of Research – W.C Booth,G G Colomb, JM Williams, 3rd Edition I only have it on hard copy
Workshop: Thesis Development -Must be at least 800 words
The major claim (or “thesis”) you plan to make in your final paper should answer your research question. You may not have completely finalized that claim yet, but it will be helpful to articulate your current thinking. You can (and should!) revise your thesis as you continue your research and writing.
For the Week 4 Assignment you will submit a draft of your thesis. In this workshop forum you will work collaboratively with your classmates to develop your thesis and the overall argument in support of that thesis. Read the instructions for the Week 4 Writing Assignment, and then post 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). Additionally, as required in the Week 4 Assignment, give the most important reasons and evidence for that claim.
