Literature Essay (Writeacher)

Writeacher, I truly need your help. I must finish this essay tonight but I am struggling. I read my thesis statement along with the first body paragraph, but it doesn't correspond whatsoever! I think I may need to rewrite the entire first paragraph. I don't know what to do.

  2. Here's your thesis statement from Writeacher's post last night.

    "THIS is your thesis statement: People fear more now because there is more to be afraid of. "

    Refer to the outline I suggested in your first thread on this subject. What is your first point?

  4. This just restates your thesis statement. What specifically do we fear more now than we did in the past?

  5. I disagree with your thesis. If I were to write an essay on this topic, my thesis statement would be

    People have less to fear now than they have in the last 100 years.

    I. Many illnesses that used to kill or cripple people have been eradicated
    II. Fear of being bombed by nuclear weapons was a constant concern.
    III. The U.S. drafted young men into the armed forces to fight in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.

  9. O.K. There you have an outline for your essay. Now write a paragraph about each of these. You may want to combine some of these so that you have three substantial body paragraphs.
