    • A road map – a list of topics that you will use to prove your thesis (body paragraphs)
    • A transition to the first body paragraph (#1 of your road map topics)
  • A series of body paragraphs that prove your thesis
    • Topic sentence for each paragraph
    • Ideas (opinions) and details (evidence) from the text about the protagonist
    • Ideas (opinions) and details (evidence) from your memory about you
  • Each body paragraph should have a minimum of three supporting ideas and details (for both the protagonist and you) to support the topic sentence and the thesis.
    • Use citations for all paraphrasing and direct quotations.
      • Paraphrasing – putting someone else’s ideas into your own words
      • Direct quotations – when you use the exact words from a text; these quotations must have “ and “ around them
      • Citations include the last name of the author, a comma, and the page number surrounded by brackets (McKay, 57)

      • You will be using your source for each point in each paragraph, and so there will be a minimum of three citations (3 sources of evidence) per body paragraph.
  • Transition sentences between body paragraphs

  • A conclusion paragraph

    • Summarize the topic sentences and evidence to show you have proven your thesis
    • Finish with a final thought about your subject and the thesis
