For this ENC1102 Essay #2 Planning Worksheet, you already understand that planning is a crucial step in essay writing because it helps organize your thoughts and prevents you from jumping around or repeating yourself.
To begin, you need to develop your thesis statement. A thesis statement for an essay should be one sentence only, and you should be able to back it up with evidence from the literary text and scholarly criticism.
To develop your thesis statement for Essay #2, you will need to first select one of following literary texts we have read:
Once you have selected the literary work you wish to write about, you will need to select one of the following elements of literature:
Now that you have chosen both the literary work and the element of literature, it is time to consider your opinion. For example, let’s say that you have chosen Trifles and you want to write about the relationship between the three female characters: Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Hale, and Mrs. Wright. What do you think about their relationship? Is it just their gender that ties them together? Do they relate to one another, and if so, why? What prompts Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale to feel empathy for Mrs. Wright? Why do they hide the evidence?
You may not have been asked to give your opinion on literature before, but a good collegiate-level thesis statement contains your opinion stated as if it were a fact. For example:
I think that the experience of living life in the early twentieth century as a married woman in rural New England binds Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Hale, and Mrs. Wright together in sisterhood.
If we delete “I think” from the above sentence, we have a pretty good thesis statement:
The experience of living life in the early twentieth century as a married woman in rural New England binds Mrs. Peters, Mrs. Hale, and Mrs. Wright together in sisterhood.
