Thesis statements are probably on your minds these days. You have two more papers due in this class that require thesis statements: your fiction paper and the final analysis paper. (You might also consider crafting a thesis or controlling statement for your final Weblog self-analysis.)
Here’s a great link on thesis statements from UNC’s writing center: http://www.unc.edu/depts/wcweb/handouts/thesis.html
What I like about the above site is that it has specific examples–which can really help you see what makes a strong and a not so strong thesis.
This site also has a pretty good page on MLA citation: http://www.unc.edu/depts/wcweb/handouts/mla.html
If you have papers in other classes where the topic is assigned, this site can help you craft a strong thesis: http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets/thesis_statement.shtml
And, last but not least, running out of time? Here is a good site that breaks down the main ideas about thesis statements into short and sweet statements: http://leo.stcloudstate.edu/acadwrite/thesistatement.html
