Answer:

A traditional essay will usually include an introductory paragraph, body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Your introductory paragraph will include the introduction of your points and a thesis statement which will capture what you aim to inform the reader of in this essay. Your body paragraphs will serve as support for/of your thesis. Here you will often cite/source information, provide supporting details, and tie in your respective main ideas/ major/ and minor details. Lastly, your conclusion is the "icing on the cake." Here you will remind the reader of your main points and conclude your final thoughts as it pertains to your thesis, and paper as a whole.

Question:

What is the traditional English sentence structure?

Answer:

The traditional English sentence structure can often include subject + verb + object. However, there are more complex structures which we will explore as we grow further in our studies. In taking this more simple approach, it is important to remember that the subject performs the action in a sentence. For example, in the sentence "Cindy drinks water," Cindy is doing something so Cindy is the subject. The verb usually indicates the action, for example in Cindy drinks water, "drinks" would be the action as it indicates what Cindy does. Lastly, the object usually appears after the verb. Ask yourself, what is Cindy drinking? Cindy is drinking "water" this is the object.

Question:

What is a thesis statement and why is it necessary in a paper?

Answer:

A thesis statement is essentially the blueprint to your paper as a whole. If you were to give someone one line out of your paper to illustrate your main point, objective, and/or argument, the thesis statement would be your shining star. The thesis, usually found in the last sentence of an introductory paragraph, shows the reader what topic is being discussed, and more importantly--can control the ideas within the paper.
