Sample THESIS, basic OUTLINE, and WORKING BIBLIOGRAPHY for a Persuasive Research Paper Focused on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
My students write a persuasive research paper based on a focused issue in Rebecca Skloot’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
(See my other free product with sample research questions. It helps students find an issue of interest for research.)
After students complete their preliminary research, I ask them to submit a tentative THESIS, basic OUTLINE, and WORKING BIBLIOGRAPHY.
I use this as a sample to show them how the thesis will determine the structure of the body of the essay.
I also explain how the thesis/outline is essential because it allows them to do targeted research. The topic sentences make it clear exactly what kind of support they are looking for when they access library resources.
As a class, we brainstorm “keywords” (or search terms) that would help them locate support for the sub-claims in the topic sentences.
