  • If you’ve done a good job on the matrix, you’re ready to look for consistencices, inconsistencies, and patterns in your articles. First, though, you’ve got to think about the type of article – is the article sharing findings or advice? Make sure you’re looking through the right lens. If several of your articles seem to say the same thing, look closer! What are the details/intricacies? Remember, you are becoming an expert on this topic. Show theme indentification for navigation article. ACTIVITY: SORT LEGOS!!!!!!
  • Caitlin’s ideas about switching modes … from computer to paper and pencil.
  • Develop a working thesis statement: a rough idea of your topic and the important point you want to make about that topic. Write it at the top of a rough draft or outline and look at it often to keep you focused throughout the essay. NOTE: the thesis statement that you begin with is not set in stone. If you find that your essay shifts topic slightly, you can change your thesis in later drafts so that it matches your new focus.
    In your paper, include a statement or two in the first paragraph that make it obvious what the paper is about.
