Research Step 1: Topic/Working Thesis

Gatsby by Fitzgerald, The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway, Tender is the Night by Fitzgerald, or For Whom the Bell Tollsby Hemingway. The topic is up to you, but you will be required to complete ALL of the steps of the research process

Step 1:

Briefly state your topic selection and write a working thesis sentence. Your thesis sentence should be the beginning of the argument that you will make about your topic. You can choose what aspect you want to focus on (for example, theme, imagery, character development, etc). You will get a chance later to revise your thesis sentence if you find that your ideas change during the research process. Ultimately, your thesis sentence that you end up with when you write the actual paper should provide a blueprint of what you want to say ABOUT those elements of the novel. Type your topic selection and working thesis
