to write a thesis statement, you need to make a claim about some thing. for instance, "chocolate is the best candy ever because its delicious" you would then go on to explain why.

My teacher said it has to look somewhat like this... In "Letter from Birmingham jail", Dr Martin Luther King jr, uses stylistic devices such as (language element), (language element), (structure element), and (structure element) in order to (why it matters statement) the parenthesis is were I insert those things.
anonymous
  • anonymous
please let me know if that is confusing
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
so what she did is give you like a "stencil" or "fill in the blank" statement. she basically did all the work for you. u just hav to find which structure element goes, where, why it matters, etc. does that make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.. but where it says language element.. I have to insert a language element from the letter.
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
they wont legit say "language element" in the letter, so what you hav to do is determine which element it is. figurative, imaginative, etc
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohh! I see what you mean. I have to choose two - metaphors - similes -personification - allusions - connotative language - Rhetorical questions - alliteration
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
yep :]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok so can you help me find two (:
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
shurr
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im soo horrible at this kind of stuff ha
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
its okay, dont worry. ill help :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
would this be one... I guess it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say wait. like metaphor
anonymous
  • anonymous
OR this one.. Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have this one for allusion to a degree academic freedom is a reality today because Socrates practiced civil disobedience.
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you soo much! are any of the 3 i picked out above any good?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
i think idk...
anonymous
  • anonymous
@tootzrll I got it no worries! I already filled it in. The real problem I have is the structure element part..
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
okay just the structure element?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup! I got the rest after that! I have to pick two: - clear claim - strategic support - tone
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
okay lemme see...
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think tone and clear claim would probably be the easiest two to pick tbh lol
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
ya, those look like the best options
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeahh but with tone do they mean the tone of the whole letter?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
noooottt nescessarily... just in that statement
anonymous
  • anonymous
which statement?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
the last one u sent
anonymous
  • anonymous
the allusion?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
I have this one for allusion to a degree academic freedom is a reality today because Socrates practiced civil disobedience.
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
^ that one
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay got it!
anonymous
  • anonymous
then i have to find the clear claim for the metaphor i picked out?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
i think so...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh okayy
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh wait!
anonymous
  • anonymous
The tone and clear claim would be for the.. (why it matters statement).
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have a list of "why it matters statement" I just have to pick one out
anonymous
  • anonymous
have i confused you yet? sorrry
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
no its fine. for the why it matters thing i think u need to explain legit why the letter matters
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
i think... idk
anonymous
  • anonymous
to encourage the church leaders to take action for equal rights
anonymous
  • anonymous
does that sound good?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
yep!
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so im prettty sure i have to find the tone and clear claim of that sentence
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
yup u got it! i think...
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol my teacher will correct me if im wrong. Soo i think the tone is more determined right?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
the tone would be like HOW THIS SENTENCE TRANSITIONED INTO ME TALKING TO SCREAMING. so find the "voice" of the letter, and thats the tone kinda sorta
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha i think i got you Determined, driven, purposefulness, and dedication
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
yup! u got it!
anonymous
  • anonymous
yay! how do i find the clear claim tho?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
tbh idk what ur teacher means by "clear cla- WAIT
anonymous
  • anonymous
........wait?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
by clear claim i think she means... okay ya! so what u need to do is find out h\what the letters' claim is. what are they claiming?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait wait in the sentence " to encourage the church leaders to take action for equal rights" or the whole letter?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
the whole letter. what is it claiming to be true?
anonymous
  • anonymous
That they want justice ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
andd equal rights
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
wouldnt the claim be that all people are the same, no matter their color? or something along those lines...?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The clear claim would be that all people are the same, no matter what their color is. Does that sound good?
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
and that all people deserve equal rights, despite their color. what about that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
great! thank you soo much! i would give you a thousand medals if I could (:
tootzrll
  • tootzrll
awwww thanks im glad i could help :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
(: here is the finale thing In "Letter from Birmingham jail", Dr Martin Luther King jr, uses stylistic devices such as metaphors example: dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted, allusion example: to a degree academic freedom is a reality today because Socrates practiced civil disobedience. , The tone would be Determined, driven, purposefulness, and dedication and clear claimAll people are the same and they all deserve equal rights, despite their color - in order to to encourage the church leaders to take action for equal rights
anonymous
  • anonymous
