By now, you have a good idea of where you want to go with your Final Project. You know your topic. You have practiced writing thesis sentences and outlines on other topics. It is now time to write the most important thesis and outline—the ones that will serve as the basis for your Final Project.
This week, you will develop a thesis statement and outline for your own persuasive paper (the Final Project). You will first craft a thesis sentence based on your case study selection. What exactly are you going to argue about your case study topic? This will be your thesis statement.
Then, create an outline to support your thesis statement. Note: In a sentence outline, all ideas within the outline are written in complete sentences.
