Notes on thesis and works cited

THERE ARE TWO DISCUSSIONS OF THESIS HAPPENING IN UNIT THREE. THE FIRST IS THE THESIS BELONGING TO THE ESSAY THAT YOU ARE DISCUSSING. THE SECOND IS THE THESIS THAT YOU WILL GENERATE TO REFLECT THE SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS OF YOUR PAPER WITH THE BIGGEST CLAIMS OF YOUR RHETORICAL ANALYSIS. YOUR THESIS IS THE BACKBONE OF THE ENTIRE ESSAY.

BOTH OF THESE WILL APPEAR BACK TO BACK IN YOUR UNIT THREE ESSAY WITH YOUR THESIS COMING AT THE END OF YOUR INTRODUCTION AND THE THESIS OF THE ESSAY YOU ARE DISCUSSING AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR SUMMARY PORTION.
