Synthesis Prompt Response/ Thesis Paragraph

After looking at the strong sample responses, I want you to think about the best way for you to write your thesis paragraph.  Make any necessary changes to your paragraph on paper, then type it here.  Be sure to copy your work before you submit it. 

After you finish, go to http://bcs.bedfordstmartins.com/exercisecentral/QuizHome.aspx?isHeaderClick=y&CourseID=3.  Log into your account.  If you don’t have an account, create one.  Click the “Editing and Proofreading” hyperlink;  then “Editing for Sentence Style and Word Choice;”  then “Concise Sentences.”  Do exercises 279 and 280.  For homework do 113 and 589.
