what differentiates a strong cause-and-effect essay from a weak one?
Welcome to the Purdue OWL This page is brought to you by the OWL at Purdue ( [ When printing this page, you must include the entire legal notice at bottom. Contributors:Stacy Weida, Karl Stolley. Summary: These OWL resources will help you develop and refine the arguments in your writing. Developing Strong Thesis Statements The thesis statement or main claim must be debatable An
argumentative or persuasive piece of writing must begin with a debatable thesis or claim. In other words, the thesis must be something that people could reasonably have differing opinions on. If your thesis is something that is generally agreed upon or accepted as fact then there is no reason to try to persuade people. Example of a non-debatable thesis statement: Pollution is bad for the environment. This thesis statement is not debatable. First, the word pollution means that something is bad or negative in some way. Further, all studies agree that pollution is a problem, they simply disagree on the impact it will have or the scope of the problem. No one could reasonably argue that pollution is good. Example of a debatable thesis statement: At least twenty-five percent of the federal budget should be spent on limiting pollution. This is an example of a debatable thesis because reasonable people could disagree with it. Some people might think that this is how we should spend the nation's money. Others might feel that we should be spending more money on education. Still others could argue that corporations, not the government, should be paying to limit pollution. Another example of a debatable thesis statement: America's anti-pollution efforts should focus on privately owned cars. In this example there is also room for disagreement between rational individuals. Some citizens might think focusing on recycling programs rather than private automobiles is the most effective strategy. The thesis needs to be narrow Although the scope of your paper might seem overwhelming at the start, generally the narrower the thesis the more effective your argument will be. ]

Which is more challenging to analyze, an image or a concept? Explain your answer
Weegy: A concept is much challenging to analyze than an image. Often, it is easier to understand a concept within it is in a form of illustration such as image. User: What two strategies or techniques will you use the next time you analyze a concept? What makes you interest in sing them? Weegy: A learning strategy is a general plan that a learner formulates for achieving a somewhat distant academic goal (like getting an A on your next exam). [ Like all strategies, it specifies what will be done to achieve the goal, where it will be done, and when it will be done. A learning tactic is a specific technique (like a memory aid or a form of notetaking) that a learner uses to accomplish an immediate objective (such as to understand the concepts in a textbook chapter and how they relate to one another). As you can see, tactics have an integral connection to strategies. They are the learning tools that move you closer to your goal. Thus, they have to be chosen so as to be consistent with the goals of a strategy. ] (More)
