Generating Ideas for Writing

Then, review the techniques for generating ideas discussed in Chapter 4 of Essentials of College Writing. In preparation for your narrative essay, use both chapters to experiment with generating ideas for your narrative essay and to produce a working thesis statement for your draft this week. Share your experiences in this discussion indicating the topic you have chosen, your working thesis statement, and the technique(s) you have employed to properly organize your essay.  Initial posts must be 200 to 300 words in length and posted by Day 3. Respond to at least two of your classmates by paying particular attention to the working thesis statements and by offering feedback/suggestions for improvement. This is a good time to approach your narrative drafts as a writer’s workshop. Response posts must be 125 to 200 words in length and posted by Day 7. If you have questions about how to participate in discussions, consult “About Discussions” under the Course Home menu. You are not required to support your claims with additional scholarly materials; however, should you decide to use additional sources, make sure you properly cite any references.Word Range: 200-300 (initial post); 125-200 (each response)
