I Need Some Assistance With These Assignment Thesis Statement Worksheet Thank Yo

I need some assistance with these assignment. thesis-statement-worksheet Thank you in advance for the help! Thesis ment Worksheet Instructions: Complete the following worksheet to come up with at least three possible thesis ments generated from a single topic.

Step 1: Pick a Topic.

Move from a theoretical to practical question that defines an issue–in other words, from the general to the specific. Heres an example:

General: Gun control

Less general: Assault weapons

Specific: National laws regarding the sale of assault weapons.

1. In the space below, type your general topic.

Parenting

2. Now, narrow down the topic and write down something less general about it below.

Single parenting

3. Next, do some research and find a specific example that deals with the issue, then write a specific topic below.

Children raised by single parent exhibit different characters from those raised by both parents

Step 2: Turn the Topic into a Question.

1. Now that you have a specific topic, turn it into a question. Write your question in the space below.

Do children raised by single parent exhibit different characters from those raised by both parents?

2. Next, take your topic question and answer each of the four Stasis Questions below. At various points along the way, you may need to go do more research on the topic to answer the questions. Also, you will come up with a lot of different options for specific thesis sentences as you work through the questions. Make sure that you write down these optional thesis sentences as you discover them. You’ll need them later.

Stasis Question 1: Is it an Argument of Fact? (Are the facts in dispute? What can be argued about the facts?)

The topic question is an argument

Did something happen?

No

What are the facts?

Do I have sources that offer a different perspective?

N/A

Stasis Question 2: Is it an Argument of Definition (Is the disagreement about how the issue is defined? Could it be defined another way?)

The topic question is an argument and not a definition and can therefore be defined differently.

What name should be given to what happened?

The question is an argument and thus cannot be defined

What is the nature of the problem?

The problem is social

Single parenthood makes kids behave differently

Is it a subcategory of a larger issue?

Stasis Question 3: Is it an Argument of Evaluation (Is this a question of right or wrong? What can be argued about the morality of the issue)?

Is it a good thing or a bad thing?

The question is a good thing

Whom might it affect (stakeholders)?

Kids

Parents

My sources are categorizing the issue as morally upright that can be discussed

Are one or both sides “spinning” the issue—making it a moral issue when it isn’t?

No, both sides are considering the issue as moral

Stasis Question 4: Is it a Policy Argument? (Does this issue impact a lot of people? Should we make a law about it?)

The issue does not impact on a lot of people because not all kids raised by a single parent exhibit the same weird characters. Therefore, a law should not be made about it.

Should action be taken?

Yes

Who should be involved in helping to solve the problem/address the issue?

Parenting consultants/experts

What should be done about this problem?

A single parent should be advised to get into a relationship for the sake of his/her kid(s)

What needs to happen to solve this problem/address this issue?

A single parent should get into a relationship for the sake of his/her kid(s)

Step 3: Turn the Question into an Issue Statement.

At this point, you should have several possible questions that you can turn into issue statements. An issue statement is a stand on a particular topic, a statement that reveals a point of view that others might disagree with. It is not an observation. it is an arguable point.

Here’s an example:

Question: Should Congress ban assault weapons?

Issue Statement: Congress should ban assault weapons.

In the spaces below, take the three best questions you came up with in Step 2 and turn them into issue statements (like the examples above).

Question 1:

Do children raised by single parent exhibit different characters from those raised by both parents?

Issue Statement 1:

Children raised by single parent exhibit different characters from those raised by both parents.

Question 2:

Issue Statement 3:

Step 4: Answer How and Why

In the space below, rewrite your questions from Step 3 in the first box, then rewrite the question answering “how” in the second box, answering “why” in the third box, and then combining them into one sentence in the fourth box.
