Thesis statement
It is NOT a thesis statement at all! Your thesis statement must include factual information plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and wha...

Now that you have added -- and revised -- the counterargument element, it's fine.

Grammar Answer Check
2. Coordinating; coordinating. The first coordinating conj connects the two independent clauses; the second coordinating conj joins two compound verbs. The word "and" is nowhere to be found in the list of subordinating conjunctions!!

Grammar Answer Check
Incorrect: 2. Coordinating; correlative? [Correlative conjunctions come in pairs. Did you read through the linked page Ms. Sue gave you?] No, I didn't mean to do it that way? [Why the question mark?] I agree with all your other answers.

A Opinion From Ms. Sue
Your revision of the first sentence of the second paragraph is really good. Nice job. As long as you are addressing students in the '60s, this is fine.

Whether an assignment says "persuade" or "convince" or "argue," the point is the same: 1. State your proposition ... and make sure it's an arguable premise. If no one would disagree with you, then there's nothing to convince others about. ...

Read through those steps and follow them. Each step doesn't have to result in a complete paragraph, but all the steps need to be addressed and dealt with.
