Thomas Siarski’s Tutorial
A First Look Here is a first look at how persuasive search papers should be structured. HOOK Your Hook grabs the readers attention. TRANSITION The transition is needed to smoothly slide from the hook into the facts of the paper. THESIS Your thesis is most important, it is the backbone of the entire paper. TOPIC SENENCE The topic sentence of each paragraph sets the tone for that particular paragraph. IDEAS After your topic sentence of that paragraph, you should list your organized ideas that fall under that particular topic sentence. THESIS Restate your thesis, using different words. TRANSISTION Use a transition for the opposite reason as last time. SUMMARY Your summary should tie together all your information. The summary can be the “end” of your hook. BODY PARAGRAPHS INTRODUCTION CONCLUSION (INTRO. FLIPPED)
Thesis Statement In a persuasive research paper, the thesis statement must address the opposition and introduce the three main points of your paper. For example, if the topic of the paper is “artificial intelligence”, then the thesis would read: For example, if the topic of the paper is “artificial intelligence”, then the thesis would read: “Although artificial intelligence may benefit society, science should not strive further in the study because (1)_____, (2)_____, and/or (3)_____.”
Addressing the Cons The first part of the thesis: “Although artificial intelligence may benefit society…” “Although artificial intelligence may benefit society…” is the part that address the opposition. This section of the thesis statement is the section that sets the tone for the entire first body paragraph of your paper.
The Three Main Points “…science should not strive any further in the study because (1)____, (2)____, and/or (3)____.” The next section of your thesis (above) is the section that should be the skeleton of the rest of your body paragraphs. The topic sentence of the second paragraph for this particular A.I. paper should be: “One reason artificial intelligence can result in negative consequences is (1)_______.” (Where the (1) in the thesis is the exact same word as the (1) in the topic sentence).
Repeat your Steps “…science should not strive any further in the study because (1)____, (2)____, and/or (3)____.” Now, repeat what you did for the second paragraph’s topic sentence for the third paragraph… “Another reason the development of A.I. should cease is (2)____.” “Another reason the development of A.I. should cease is (2)____.” (Where (2) in the topic sentence is the exact same word as the (2) in the thesis statement). Repeat this for the topic sentence in paragraph four.
The Conclusion Your conclusion should be your introduction flipped. Restate your thesis using different words. Use a transition sentence or phrase to slide from the paper back into your hook, or into an overall summary.
Finally… HOOK TRANSITION THESIS TRANSISTION SUMMARY TOPIC SENENCE IDEAS Look over to see that your paper is in the proper format. Check for spelling errors. Check for punctuation errors, run-ons, and fragments.
