Module Four Thesis Statement Assignment Guidelines and Rubric
Details: For this assignment, you are going to work on a thesis statement. A thesis statement is a sentence that states the topic and purpose of a paper. A good thesis statement will direct the structure of your final essay and will allow your reader to understand the ideas you will discuss within your paper. Therefore, it should be one sentence, succinct, and well thought out, and it should summarize your reaction to the selected reading and your supporting points.
For this assignment, you will compose a thesis statement that summarizes the article you selected to work on throughout the course. Use the framework below to help you construct your thesis statement:
The article’s main claim of __________________ is __________________
Supporting Key Points:
because __________________, __________________, and __________________.
The main claim should summarize your reaction to your selected reading and your supporting points. Remember that a strong thesis statement should contain a main claim and three supporting points to back up the main claim.

Identify a main claim that relates to the selected work.
Identify three relevant key points in support of your claim.
