Question and answer
A good thesis statement helps guide the rest of your paper. Do you think this is true? Is it true of a poor thesis statement as well? Why? In 150 words please
Yes! A good thesis statement helps guide the rest of your paper. Also a poor thesis statement will negatively affect your paper. [ The main point of any thesis statement is to state your argument, but that is easier said than done; so, how do you do it? Let me tell you. Try to include as many of these five main points in your argument as possible without getting too wordy: who, what, where,
when, and why. Here is how you break each down. First, “who” deals specifically with who is being affected or involved in the situation you are researching. Think of it like the characters in a story. Next is “what,” which is associated with the event you are researching, or what the “who” is involved in. This is a very broad term that can pertain to almost anything you are studying. Are you looking at a war, treaty, movement in history? After that, you will want to look at “where.” Specific locations are going to be your main target here, looking exactly where the event you are researching took place. Also, you may want to include information on why this event took place in this particular location. Similar to “where” is “when.” In this case, you are looking for a specific location in time instead of space. Include a time frame if at all possible, such as, “The American Civil War took place from 1861 to 1865.” Finally, “why.” This is the most important element! Why is going to look at a couple of different things, but most importantly why did an event happen and why was it important. Basically, you are going to want to look at this through a lens of cause and effect; what caused it and what were the after effects. Remember to pull in the theme: Successes, Failures, Consequences! ]

Quotations can add authority to any project. However, too many quotations can be distracting. As a general rule, no more than 15% to 20% of your paper should contain directly quoted materials. Do you agree with this general rule? Why? What will you do to ensure that you stay within appropriate limits?
Weegy: I agree with this statement because if the majority of the paper is quotes, it is essentially someone else's paper. [ To stay within the appropriate limits, I will use quotes when necessary to back up my thesis, and then I will explain the quotes importance in my own words. This way there will be a balance between quotes and information that I provide. ] (More)
