Argument & Thesis Statements
Rhetorical Analysis Thesis Workshops
These two activities are designed to introduce students to the idea of a thesis statement for a rhetorical analysis essay and provide structured peer feedback on their draft thesis statement.
Evolving Your RA Argument
In this workshop, students apply the Evolving Thesis method to their RA pre-write, using the pre-write as a foundation to develop their first working thesis.
The Elevator Pitch with Peer Response
This activity helps students continue to develop their focus and argument for their RBAs. It is intended to show students that research is an ongoing process.
