17 Notebook Pg. 24A Writing great Thesis Statements- Three Levels of Thesis Statements Once you have your Evidence, it is time to write your thesis statement. It is actually easier to do this once you know what you are going to say and what you have evidence for.There are three levels of thesis statements.Level one- restate the prompt as a statement.Prompt: Was MacArthur a great leader?Level 1: MacArthur was a great leader.Level two- restate the prompt as a statement but include the word “because” and say why.Level 2: MacArthur was a great leader because _________________ ________________________________________________________Level 2 thesis statements are so useful because the three things you include after your “because” as the answer to your “why” become the three body sections of our essay or outline. This kind of thesis gives you a clear road map for where the essay and your reasoning are going.Write your Thesis now….Thesis Example: MacArthur was a great leader because he was intelligent.
18 Ultimate Thesis of Ultimate Destiny… Level three- rephrase the prompt in a new way and include your own philosophy when you address the “why” aspect of your answer.Level 3: Greatness in leadership comes from serving ones own people and improving their lives. MacArthur used his intelligence, his ability to think independently and his drive to be a winner to get the American people through their darkest hours during WWII.
19 What makes a Thesis a Level Three Thesis? Level three- rephrase the prompt in a new way and include your own philosophy when you address the “why” aspect of your answer.Many of you asked how you know you have included your own philosophy, in order to get a Level 3 thesis statement and I was not able to articulate it, but after school I asked the head of the English Department and this is what she said:“Level three thesis statements include three pieces of evidence to prove the thesis statement, just like a typical Level 2. However, in a level 3 thesis, there is a deeper, underlining (below the surface) connection between the three pieces of evidence.
20 Essay Practice- Pg 25AThesis: MacArthur was a great leader because he was intelligentState Quality:Evidence 1:Detail/Specific:Evidence 2: (optional)Detail Specific:(optional)Explanation/ Commentary of how Evidence proves he had/did not have qualityAny paper without clear explanations will be returned un-graded. Do this part carefully!Concluding Sentence:Fill In this chart now….
21 Commentary/Explanation... Paragraph Example:MacArthur was a great leader because he was intelligent. He earned some of the highest academic scores ever recorded at West Point Academy. He rebuilt Japan and helped write their constitution. The Japanese still use this Constitution today. He started important reforms. He started land reform. He started political reforms. He secured voting rights for women in the new democracy….Commentary/Explanation...ClaimEvidenceDetailGreat! You only have one more piece to add... the Explanation. This piece is Vital in any essay outline or essay. This is where you say HOW your evidence proves your claim. Our Claim is that MacArthur was intelligent. Our evidence is below that. Now say how the evidence proves he was intelligent. Write your own Explanation now….2121
22 Paragraph Example:MacArthur was a great leader because he was intelligent. He earned some of the highest academic scores ever recorded at West Point Academy. He rebuilt Japan and helped write their constitution. The Japanese still use this Constitution today. He started important reforms. He started land reform. He started political reforms. He secured voting writes for women in the new democracy. West Point Academy is one of the most difficult schools in America. MacArthur could only have done well there if he was intelligent. Japan faced many problems after WWII, but MacArthur was able to make the correct decisions to rebuild Japan’s government into one that has allowed Japan to succeed to the current time. MacArthur was even wise enough to recognize the importance of giving women a voice in government as well as other reforms. The fact that he thought of all of Japan’s people is further evidence of his intelligence.ClaimEvidenceDetailExplanation2222
23 Reading level gets harder Who should you do?Reading level gets harderYou have 4 choices:Stalin- RussiaChurchill- EnglandFDR- USADe Gaulle- FranceYou will need to print your own WWII Leader Biography.

24 Pg. 26A/B WWII Leader Mini Essay Now you will repeat this process on your own with a leader of WWII.You will use an outline to prove that your leader Was or Was Not a Great leader. You MUST choose one.Lets review the assignment to see exactly what you need to do for each grade.No More than 1 page double spaced and typed.
25 How are social studies writing assignments different than English Writing Assignments? Social Studies assignments don’t EVER use “I” or “you” or “we”, so don’t write “I think that…” Instead just say what you think as a claim.Social Studies assignments always use Formal Language so avoid slang, or words like “stuff”, “hella”, “sucked” and so on. Find formal words to say the same things.No Rhetorical Questions!You don’t need a Hook!No Filler! Just get to the point.
27 Please set up Pg. 27A like this: Please do not talk at this time Sept 20HW: WWII Leader Essay due Mon.Pg. 27: Churchill’s Dunkirk SpeechAuthorPlace and TimeAudienceThe Main IdeaSignificanceFocus Question: How will this speech affect the actions of British Citizens? British Empire Subjects? American Allies?Please set up Pg. 27A like this:Critical Thinking Grade
28 The Battle of DunkirkBattle of Dunkirk : A battle in World War II between the Allies and Germany. The battle was the defense and evacuation of British and allied forces in Europe from 26 May--4 June 1940 after a failed assault on mainland Europe. The 'Halt Order' issued by the German army gave the Allie's three days in which to evacuate and establish a defensive line. In the end over 330,000 Allied troops were rescued from the beaches. Most of the rescue came from civilian ships, called upon by Churchill to sail to Dunkirk and save the British, French and Belgian Armies with the support of the British and French Navies and Air Force.
29 Pg. 27A: Churchill’s Dunkirk Speech Read the speech and fill in the boxes for each piece of information.We are analyzing a primary source with this method.Use the focus question to answer How the Source is Significant.
30 June 4, 1940Winston Churchill "We Shall Fight on the Beaches"House of CommonsFollowing May 26, "Operation Dynamo," Dunkirk, the evacuation of 338,000 Allied troops to English shores.....The British Empire and the French Republic, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength. Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.
32 Pg. 28A: The London BlitzSourcing: London Can Take It- Produced by the British Government in October 1940, 'London Can Take It' is narrated by American journalist Quentin Reynolds and pays tribute to London and its people during the Blitz on the capital. The film's huge impact at the time, especially in the USA, makes it historically one of the most important of the Ministry of Information's wartime films.Sourcing Questions:How is this film valuable as a source of information to historians about the London Blitz?What might make this source and the information it presents suspect?You only need to answer the question. You do not need to write it.
