Outline: Thesis+ Sub claims
Step 2: Brainstorm. Create a mindmap on the basis of what you have read/thought of/researched. Narrow down the topic to a specific area of focus.
Step 3: Make an argument that is not too broad/narrow– in other words, create a thesis statement (1-3 lines) that (a) focuses on a specific aspect of the broad topic; (b) makes a clear argument; (c) can be broken up into 3 or 4 sub claims.
Step 4: Write down your working thesis statement.
Optional step for paper outline: Feel free to make note of at least 2 or 3 examples/evidence you’d be adding to each of these sub-claims in your final essay.
