English composition

I'm writing a paper to explain a concept of the bevel Ella Minnow Pea. I've come up with a thesis statement and my teacher has approved it, but I'm just stuck as to what I'm writing about.

The assignment instructions asks "How does Dunn legitimize his ideas for the reader? Does he make 'his case'?" Also it says to show how Dunn supports his interpretation of the concept and makes it 'real' for the reader.

Is this a good thesis?

In the Mark Dunn novel, Ella Minnow Pea, the High Council severely censors the Nollopian’s alphabet, but through lingual ingenuity, neighborliness, and perseverance they thankfully regain their alphabet.

If it is, my next question is what am I supposed to write about? How the people use each of those points to regain their alphabet? Or what?

asked by Dylan
  1. Yes. Your thesis lays out three ways in which they regained their alphabet. Now in your paper, you need to devote at least one paragraph for each of those ways, and in each paragraph explain exactly how that particular point helped them regain it.
