We learned about a Thesis and an Introduction last week. For your Learning Journal assignment, you will create your own Thesis and Introduction for your own research paper. The introduction should be at least 1 paragraph long and can be as long as 4 paragraphs. Remember, you can use this link to help you: http://corptrain.phoenix.edu/thesis_generator/thesis_generator.html.
An outline for the paper is optional, but it will help you craft your ideas later.
Your instructor will use the following rubric to grade your Learning Journal:
Aspect 1: Does the student have a thesis and introduction?
Aspect 2: How strong is the thesis? Is it more appropriate for a 5 paragraph essay instead of a research paper? Are there things the student should expand or draw back?
Aspect 3: Focusing only on the introduction, does the introduction give a proper map to the rest of the paper? Does it discuss the thesis in enough detail? Are there things the student can add in to strengthen the introduction?
Aspect 4: Is this a work of original thought? Has the student used a solid analysis of the topic to bring about his or her thesis?
Aspect 5: How free of spelling and grammar issues is the introduction? Are there repeating errors that can be pointed out?
