For this discussion post, create and post your Analytical/ Research Essay thesis statement. Remember that your thesis has to be clear, direct, and complex. It should contain your position on the issue you are arguing about, a qualification, and a premise or premises/ reason or reasons.For example, if I were to write about Pollan’s “Unhappy Meals,” my thesis statement could look like this: “Although American culture today puts extraordinary emphasis on healthy eating (qualification), it
still promotes a culture of quick weight loss by intentionally
advertising and, in some cases, mislabeling certain “health foods”
(position) as Pollan argues in his text “Unhappy Meals (what text you are basing your argument on).” When
we are confused by such deceptive labeling practices by some food
companies, we sometimes struggle to make truly healthy food choices
(premise/ reason).” I hope that this example helps, but remember that this is just an example! However, also remember that this is a “flexible” thesis statement (thesis that you will adjust/ change/ revise as you draft your essay) and not a “fixed” one, so you can change or add to it is as you continue to draft your essay. Don’t forget to reply to, at least, two of your classmates’ thesis statement posts!

Learning Goal: I’m working on a english report and need a sample draft to help me learn.Question-driven close reading letter. The purpose of close reading is to examine a text, noticing what we notice and feel, in order to zoom in to deeply discuss individual parts of the poem and zoom out to demonstrate how those parts contribute to our sense of the whole. A strong close reading argument connects WHAT a poem means and what it is doing with HOW it does so through its craft devices, and WHY that is significant/why it matters/what effects that have. Attached down below are the details of the assignment, also a sample essay and rubric. Please let me know if you have any questions. Please follow all directions thoroughly in order to receive full credit.
