ElectraGuide is a tool that wants to help high school students:
To use Thesis Builder, you'll need:
- find a topic (see example topic questions?)
- create a good thesis statement (see an example?)
- and generate an outline (see an example?)
- a topic
- opinions about the topic
- reasons for your opinion and a main reason others might disagree
- Answer the following questions in short phrases (not full sentences).
- Do not use periods / full stops (.) at the end or capital letters at the beginning of the phrases you write. You can see an example.
- Click the "Build a Thesis" button when you're finished.
- A window will pop open with your Built Thesis.
- Go back and adjust your answers to smooth out the thesis until it makes sense and expresses your beliefs. Clicking on the "Build a Thesis" button again will update your thesis to show your changes.
- Once you've got a thesis statement, use the Make an Online Outline button to generate the framework for your essay. (Would you like to see an example outline?)
Let's get started!
