After completing your framed thesis/topic sentence outline, you will develop your outline into a full sentence outline that includes the supporting ideas. This assignment requires you to organize your thesis and supporting evidence to write a 3-4 page essay (plus a separate works cited page) on fracking or offshore drilling. Writing a thesis and sentence outline enables you to clarify and organize your thoughts, strengthen the structure of your argument, and cite your sources. This assignment also requires you to organize your sources into a proper MLA formatted works cited page.
