2 Framing Content (setting up the topic and conversation) EE: The beginning of the essay establishes the background and context of the topic in a concise yet detailed manner, making it clear what the writer’s argument is in relation to the subject at hand. The thesis statement successfully sets up an arguable, well-supported case for the paper. The stakes of the writer’s argument are clear. The conclusion of the essay represents synthesis rather than summary and leaves the reader with something to think about. ME: The background and context are explained fairly well, and the writer’s argument is generally clear. The stakes of the writer’s argument are clear enough. The thesis statement sets up an arguable, well-supported case for the paper. The conclusion of the essay attempts to synthesize rather than summarize and to leave the reader with something to think about. NI: The reader can formulate only a general idea of the essay’s topic and argument. The stakes of the writer’s argument may not be very clear. The thesis statement may not be fully arguable or supported within the paper. The conclusion may generally lean towards summary rather than synthesis. U: The beginning of the essay does little to clarify what the topic is and what the argument is. The writer does not address why his/her argument matters. The paper lacks a successful thesis statement. The conclusion is missing or is entirely summary based.

    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.
