Trial Reflection
  • What do you think you did well during the trial and preparation? What do you think you could have improved?
    • Researching
    • Speech writing and rehearsal
    • Speech delivery
    • Giving more evidence during rebuttals
  • In the 1800s Europeans were racist and social darwinist. They thought of the Africans and Asians as fairly pitiful. Keeping that in mind, do you think that the Europeans were committing an immoral act (according to the morals of the 1800s) when they imperialized other countries?
  • Rank the three countries we studied in terms of how guilty you believe they are of committing a crime against the natives. #1 should be the most guilty (the worst colonizer)

Why are we learning how to outline an essay?

  • What will I be expected to do?
step 1 thesis statement
Step 1: Thesis Statement

Teacher gives you an essay question…

  • Your thesis statement should answer the essay question.
3 part thesis statements
3-Part Thesis Statements
  • Your thesis should be very specific and it should make several mini-arguments.
  • Is thesis statement A or B better?

Essay Question: How did technology developed during World War One affect the lives of the ordinary citizen after the war?

A The technologies developed during World War One made a substantial impact on the lives of ordinary citizens.

B World War One technology made the biggest impact on ordinary citizens in the areas of transportation and entertainment with the development of air travel, less expensive cars and radio networks.

Generally your thesis will have three parts that give three mini-arguments.

if you re stuck
If you’re stuck…

Often history thesis statements follow one of the following skeletons:

The biggest effects of _____________ were _______, __________, and ___________.

_______________ was primarily caused by _______, ____________, and _________.

(Of course you should aim for a more interesting thesis statement.)

can we use i in our thesis or essay
Can we use “I” in our thesis or essay?
  • No!
  • Which argument is more convincing?
    • I think the biggest reasons the Germans lost WWI were…
    • The primary reasons the Germans lost WWI were…
  • Your argument is more powerful and your paper is more professional if you don’t use “I”.
develop your thesis
Develop your thesis
  • Essay Question: According to the norms of the 1800s, was imperialism morally justified?
  • Don’t forget to make a main argument supported by three reasons.
topic sentences
Topic Sentences

Topic Sentence=1st sentence in each body paragraph.

Topic Sentences should:

  • expand on a mini-argument from your thesis
  • answer your research question

Once you’ve written your topic sentence, the big test is to read the essay question and then read your topic sentence to see if it answers the research question.

topic sentence example
Topic Sentence Example

Research Question: How did technology developed during World War One affect the lives of the ordinary citizen after the war?

Thesis Statement: World War One technology made the biggest impact on ordinary citizens in the areas of transportation and entertainment with the development of air travel, less expensive cars and radio networks.

Topic Sentence #1: The radio, which was used solely by military officers during WWI, was bought and used by most ordinary American citizens for entertainment after the war.

adding topic sentences
ADDING TOPIC SENTENCES
  • Turn each of the three reasons in your thesis into a different topic sentence.
  • Three topic sentences (one to begin each paragraph)
  • Topic sentence should directly answer the research question.
introduction historical context
Introduction: Historical Context
  • Context is not a summary of the arguments you will make
  • Context is the Big Picture
    • What background info do they need to know to understand this topic?
    • What major historical events that came before my topic had a big impact on it?
    • How did people view the world then that may be different from how we view it?
  • What historical context does your essay reader need?
adding evidence
Adding Evidence

Topic Sentence #1: The radio, which was used solely by military officers during WWI, was bought and used by most ordinary American citizens for entertainment after the war.

  • Radio invented in 1895—Marconi credited but different aspects developed by different inventors
  • Used by US Navy first then various armies
  • “Pack Set” & “Wagon Set”
  • Warned trench soldiers of gas attacks, used by Germans to guide planes to bombing targets
  • 1920 Radio concert was first major international broadcast
  • Lots of small local networks developed mostly focusing on music…attempts to broadcast US President were made
  • Corporations like General Electric & Westinghouse developed networks by 1921
  • By 1922, over 500 broadcast stations around America
adding evidence1
Adding Evidence
  • Normally you would never write a thesis and topic sentences and then find evidence to fit it. You always begin by analyzing your evidence to create your arguments.
  • But…find evidence to fit your topic sentence arguments. Bullet
