Support the thesis with key points

  • Outlaw Smoking
    • Smoking is harmful
    • Smokers suffer coronaries and lung cancer
    • Nonsmokers suffer from passive smoking
    • Everyone will benefit from a smoking ban
slide5

Look over the thesis

  • On a scratch sheet of paper create some key points to address in the research paper
  • However, list the ideas in bullet points using roman numerals.
  • Example:

Outlaw Smoking

    • Smoking is harmful
    • Smokers suffer coronaries and lung cancer
    • Nonsmokers suffer from passive smoking
    • Everyone will benefit from a smoking ban
slide6

Now take some of those main ideas and begin to develop them

  • So, for example, take the idea “Smoking is harmful” and begin to develop it

Example:

  • I. Smoking is harmful

A. Medical Evidence

1. Coronaries

2. Lung Cancer

B. Smoker’s acknowledgement of danger

1. Men

2. Women

Now take one of the ideas and develop it on a scratch sheet of paper.
