Students will work to build a thesis and outline in class on Wednesday.
The thesis should be the main idea of the essay in one sentence-the idea your essay will seek to proof. In this case your thesis should involve your own response to your chosen poem. Avoid statements such as “I think” and instead seek to prove an idea about the poem.
Students should treat this as a discussion board and submit their thesis and outline as the initial post by Friday evening and respond to two peers with advice on possible improvements or comments by Sunday.
