Today – See the slides below. Tonight’s homework handout for narrowing a general topic to thesis statement with three main ideas and three concrete details for each main idea can be found here.
Sentence Structure Analysis Practice
These also serve as a thesis statement with topic sentences created from the brainstormed main ideas supporting the thesis. I underlined the main idea in each topic sentence from the brainstorming.
- Ally’s surgeon failed to reach the standards desired.
- First, his attention to detail before the surgery lacked the necessary effort to meet expectations.
- The follow up appointment in his office left much to be desired.
- The care provided to Ally is circumspect even though her progress seems promising as it stands now.
