Thesis Workbook

Step Two

Writing Your Speculative Thesis

Now that you have thought of various perspectives on your topic, you will take that topic and turn it into an arguable claim. Watch the video below to learn more.

Taking account of the three perspectives you created in the last section, what's your perspective on the topic? Type it into section two of the worksheet now. Now turn your perspective on the topic into a starting thesis using clear, assertive, and reasonable language. Type this starting or "speculative" thesis into the worksheet now. To continue, click on the "Step Three" link on the navigation panel to the left.
