TUESDAY ( 15 JANUARY 2013 )
Today our class start at 4 o'clock. Miss Zu explained about the thesis statement that we need to do in term paper. Miss Zu explained it according to types of writing such as compare and contrast, discussion, problem solving, argumentatative and cause and effect essay. The thesis statement is that sentence or two in your text that contains the focus of your essay and tells your reader what the essay is going to be about. Although it is certainly possible to write a good essay without a thesis statement (many narrative essay for example, contain only an implied thesis statement), the lack of a thesis statement may well be a symptom of an essay beset by a lack of focus. Many writers think of a thesis statement as an umbrella: everything that you carry along in your essay has to fit under this umbrella, and if you try to take on packages that don't fit, you will either have to get a bigger umbrella or something's going to get wet. The thesis statement usually appears near the beginning of a paper. It can be the first sentence of an essay, but that often feels like a simplistic, unexciting beginning. It more frequently appears at or near the end of the first paragraph or two. After Miss Zu explained it, she want us did the term paper and want to check it tomorrow. The class dismissed at 6 o'clock.
