Last week you selected a topic and began conducting research for your Media Analysis Project. Now it is time to use that research to formalize your thesis and create an outline for you paper. If you put in a good effort here, the act of actually writing the paper will be much easier.
Even though this paper is an analysis using a specific approach, it needs to have a thesis. This thesis should frame the way you choose to approach the six perspectives. Click the link below for an example.
Your outline should show the key points you will bring up in the paper. You will want to start to integrate your research in support for your key points. You can use the example outline linked below as a guide.
|After you complete your thesis and outline immediately begin to work on your paper itself. You can always adjust the paper based on the feedback you receive at a later time.|
