Assignment 1: Discussion

A thesis statement is the central crux of your paper. In the case of the argumentative research essay, it is one sentence that clearly states the topic as well as the argument of your paper. A thesis statement must not be a fact; it must be an arguable position on a topic. Consider the following two statements:

Example 1: Many high school students play after-school sports.
Example 2: While many feel that participating in sports in high school may decrease the amount of time and attention spent on schoolwork, high school athletics promote physical fitness, teamwork, and opportunities for higher education.

Of these two sentences, which would make the better thesis? Which one is arguable and has multiple points of view? Example two is the better thesis because it is an argument. Example one is a fact. It is not arguable.

Your task is to craft a thesis statement that clearly and concisely states your argument. Do not use first or second person—keep your thesis statement objective by using third person and excluding any personal opinions.

After you present your thesis statement, provide at least one paragraph explaining why your thesis statement is argumentative and how you can support your thesis statement throughout your paper. Though not all debates are so black and white as to have only two sides, you should aim to identify at least two sides of the issue at hand (both the side represented by your thesis statement, and at least one other). Then, discuss a few potential supporting points you could develop within the body of your paper and back up with information from your research.

Please comment on at least two of your classmates’ submissions. Your replies to classmates should offer guidance regarding both the thesis statement itself and the plan for developing the thesis statement: is the thesis a single sentence that is neither too broad nor too narrow, not a question, not a feeling, and not a simple fact? Are the suggested supporting points logical and researchable? Are there any additional supporting or opposing points the student may have overlooked? Remember to utilize the information you have learned from this module’s readings in your participation responses—do not simply react to the topics your classmates have posted. Each of your participation responses should be at least one paragraph in length.

You will be graded using the rubric provided below.

First classmate submission:

Good Afternoon Classmates and Professor,

Below is my thesis statement for my argumentative essay I will be developing as the course goes on.

“While project development can fail if not planned out correctly, precise planning leads to a well developed project and will bring cohesion to the company, extends your market research into a new culture and creates a new market for a product.”

My three topics under Project Development would therefore be:

1. Cohesion to a company
2. Extending your market research into a new culture
3. New market for a product you are developing

These three topics can then branch off into its own sub topics to further touch on the importance of Project Development. The importance of making a company more united with some examples of how a small business grew in size because of product development can come from the first topic. Socializing with a new culture and the importance of doing that can branch off of the second topic. And thirdly, the process of how gaining a new market and attaining competitors is firmly established. They may sound like simple topics but they are not bland and can actually further broaden my knowledge into the various aspects of project development within a product or attaining a new market territory.
