After selecting your topic, use the pre-writing strategies such as mind mapping, brain storming, and free writing to develop and refine your thesis statement. Describe your method of developing the thesis statement. At the end of your description on your pre-writing strategies, write your thesis statement. If you have used mind mapping, sketches, or drawings in your pre-writing strategies, scan in your graphics and upload as a separate attachment to the discussion board. Post your prewriting strategies and thesis statement to the discussion board.

3. Paragraph 2: Discussion of your experiences in exploring the MyCompLab. Summarize your experience in exploring the MyCompLab and the features that you think will assist you in the writing process.
