• Skills to be assessed with this assignment: creating effective thesis statements,

Mini lesson on thesis statements:
• Questions to ask yourself:
o What is the setting of my chosen story? What is the place? What
is the mood created by the author? How do the place and mood
affect the story for the reader?
o For example, it is apparent that in Whitman’s “I Hear America
Singing” you would devote a supporting section to the locations of
his poem and a supporting section to the mood he creates through
the setting.
• Translate that into a thesis:
o After you have made connections to these two areas of setting
you will then form your thesis.
o Here is a example template for your thesis. You are welcome to
use this template for your essay:
▪ In Walt Whitman’s poem “I Hear America Singing”, it is
apparent that the setting place and location shape the poem
through the obvious Americanworkers’locationsandthe
tone of triumph and hopefulness.
