The thesis statement is ONE sentence that incorporates the criteria of (1) topic, (2) claim, and (3) specifics. Review the information on the different types of thesis statements in the reading materials for Module 4 and share four aspects with your classmates that you learned about writing and developing a thesis sentence for your paper.
Here is this week’s assignment
Write your thesis statement and introduction (one paragraph). The first page of your paper will be the title page, followed by your abstract page (it has its own page!), and then the next page will start with the introductory paragraph.
Add the introductory paragraph to your APA “shell” to begin forming your final paper. Submit the entire document. However, only the introduction and thesis statement will be graded in this module.
