Thesis Statement Boot Camp


Overview

Thesis statements are the cornerstone of much academic writing at the undergraduate level, but mastering them can seem tricky or mysterious. In this workshop, we'll discuss the role of thesis statements in argumentation and we'll practice concrete strategies for developing and refining them. This workshop is intended for undergraduate students who are currently working on argumentative, researched, and/or analytical writing assignments. Participants should bring a copy of relevant assignment rubrics, as well as research notes or drafts in progress.
