Hi Period 5. Please print the paper I’ve linked this post to (below), and then

1. Identify the thesis
2. Write – next to each topic sentence – how it relates to thesis as well.
3. Remembering that each body paragraph should go:

“Topic sentence, then context/background, then quote, then analysis of quote, then sentence that wraps up paragraph / ties back to topic sentence,”

– examine this paper. Make some notes about what kind of a job it does in terms of this structure (in its body paragraphs).
