Thesis Machine (Deluxe Model) Topic:__________________________________________________________________ Topic + Position:_________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _ Topic + Position + Rationale: ______________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _ _______________________________________________________________________ _ Topic +Position +Rationale + Qualification: __________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _ _______________________________________________________________________ _ Fix-Up Checklist: Is your working thesis statement… too broad? If you can’t fully defend your position, explore the topic you address, and stay within the length requirements, your thesis should be more specific. a shopping list? If any of the components of your thesis (especially the rationale) are too fragmented, your essay will be exploring several thesis statements simultaneously, but none of will receive adequate attention. too obvious? If you argument is not fresh and wouldn’t face much opposition, readers won’t have a reason to care about the essay. a statement of fact? You can’t argue a fact, so a factual thesis can’t function as the center of an argumentative essay. missing one or more of the necessary parts? If you’re missing any of the “parts” above (topic, position, rationale, qualification), your thesis will be weak and unfocused, which could have disastrous effects on your entire essay.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
