The Essay Roadmap

The Writing Roadmap Mrs. Hoover 10th Literature Get a plan! Before writing, you need to plan it out. This is called PREWRITING! What is the topic and claim? Although you were given a character as the

focus on your project, we need to think about what you claim will be for your project! Some examples : Some characters are vital to the play (or not). Certain characters are only the way that they are because of the influence of the other characters. Specific characters are the foils, protagonists, or antagonists of the play. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

The Claim (Thesis Statement) Remember - Just a complete sentence that is declarative, debatable, and specific. Can you answer yes or no? Is it specific enough? What are some of your claims so far? Please share. The Triple Point Claim ( Thesis Statement) In order to turn my claim into a Triple Point Thesis

Statement, I must first come up with the 3 points that I will be discussing in my presentation. Example: Helena is a dominant character that changes the outcome of the play. 1. She makes the King of the Fairies feel bad for her. 2. She meddles in the business of others. 3. She is highly emotional and is the center of attention in most scenes that she is presented.

I have to now add these points to my claim (thesis statement.) My Triple Point Claim (Thesis Statement) Helena is a dominant character that changes the outcome of the play because she makes the King of the Fairies feel bad for her, she meddles in the business of others, and she is highly emotional and is the center of attention

in most scenes that she is presented. Nowlets talk about details Exercise: I need to ask a volunteer to tell me where their favorite restaurant is without using the address, street signs, or landmarks.

GO! Whats next? Roadmap to Success: Thesis (Address): Topic Sentences (Street Names): Every paragraph should include a topic sentence that identifies the main idea of the paragraph. A topic sentence also states the point the writer wishes to make about that subject. Generally, the topic sentence appears at the beginning of the paragraph. It

is often the paragraphs very first sentence. A paragraphs topic sentence must be general enough to express the paragraphs overall subject. But it should be specific enough that the reader can understand the paragraphs main subject and point. Roadmap Continued Supporting Details (Landmarks): These supporting details can be found in the primary (A Midsummer Nights Dream) and secondary sources (the sources that you found). These are also supporting details for your quotes for the project. Think of a baby learning to swim! Stay with

me! Non-Specific Details/ Off (Road Signs) These non-specific details dont always relate to the topic at hand and they are sometimes known as fluff. Just say NO. To Kill A Mockingbird Example https://prezi.com/kjznfns1dfjw/tkam-character-analysi

s-project/ This is a great example, except it is missing textual evidence and correct citing (so it doesnt look like you plagiarized!) For citing Shakespeare, use the Acts, Scenes, and Line Numbers. For example, to cite a quote from Act 1, Scene 1, Lines 123-124, you would write the quote and end the sentence with (1.1.123-124). For citing an article, simply use the last name of the

author at the end of the sentence before the period (Holland). Good luck!
