I need an explanation for this English question to help me study.
This assignment is in preparation for the first synthesis paper. The objective of the assignment is for students to outline their preliminary plans for the first synthesis.
Students should develop an opening paragraph that grabs the reader’s attention, construct a strong thesis statement, and an outline of the evidence to support their thesis claim. Students are making an argument about religion in America based solely from the evidence in Canaan Land, course lectures, and primary readings.
A thesis statement is like a roadmap for the paper. The thesis provides the argument and what will be developed in the paper.
Here’s an example of an opening paragraph with the thesis statement in bold:
After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York’s World Trade Towers and the Pentagon, the debate surrounding racial profiling in airports intensified. Many people believed that profiling was the best way to identify possible terrorists, but many others worried about violations of civil liberties. While some airports began to target passengers based solely on their Middle Eastern origins, others instituted random searches instead. Neither of these techniques seems likely to eliminate terrorism. Now many experts in the government and in airport security are recommending the use of a national ID card or Safe Traveler Card. If every US citizen had such a card, airlines could screen for terrorists more effectively than they do now and avoid procedures that single out individuals solely on the basis of race.*
*Taken from College Writers pg. 727
As can be seen, the opening paragraph sets up the topic and moves to creating an argument.
From here, an outline could be developed like so:
I. National IDs and Safe Traveler Cards are an effective way of conducting background checks on citizens.
A. Explanation of traveler IDs.
B. How security is enhanced by previously conducted background checks.
C. Description of specific techniques utilized in background checks.
II. Studies indicate that mandating Traveling IDs has reduced the number of terrorist attacks.
A. Evidence from other countries.
B. Evidence from states in America who have adopted these IDs.
C. Information from local airport security officials (interview).
III. Not only do Traveling IDs reduce terrorist attacks, they also speed up airport security lines and reduce the number of people racially profiled.
A. Evidence of the reduced amount of profiling in states where traveling IDs are required.
B. Data from airports regarding how many people are randomly searched in security lines.
C. Enhanced freedoms for the most vulnerable.
Conclusion: Traveler IDs are a safe and effective way of providing security against terrorism, and secures individual rights more effectively.
Submissions should include the opening paragraph with the thesis statement in bold, and an outline of the paper.
