Thesis Statement

What is the thesis statement? Is this a clear statement? Is the topic focused enough? Is the person making an argument or just making a general statement or asking a question?

Outline Structure

Is the outline presented in proper format, as discussed in class? Is there proper balance between sections?  Do any parts seem unrelated to the main argument?  Explain.


Are ideas presented in specific detail, using complete sentences throughout the outline?  Does the author use any direct quotes?
