Teaching the Thesis
Carroll, Joyce Armstrong
School Library Monthly, v29 n2 p18-20 Nov 2012
Writing a good thesis provides a successful foundation for composing an essay. Teaching how to do that, however, is quite another matter. Teachers often say to students, "Find a thesis," or "Get a thesis," or "Bring in a thesis statement tomorrow," as if students could order one like a pizza, command it like a pet pooch, or grasp one out of thin air like a magician. Finding the genesis for a thesis is another article--this article considers how to write one.
