For this assignment, you are going to work on a thesis statement. A thesis statement is a sentence that states the topic and purpose of a paper. A good thesis statement will direct the structure of your final essay and will allow your reader to understand the ideas you will discuss within your paper. Therefore, it should be one sentence, succinct, and well thought out, and it should summarize your reaction to the selected reading and your supporting points.
For this assignment, you will compose a thesis statement that summarizes your argument for the article you selected to work on throughout the course. Use the framework below to help you construct your thesis statement:Â
The article’s main claim ofÂ [insert summary of authorâ€™s main claim here]__________________ is _[insert your evaluation of the argument here]__________________Â
Supporting Key Points:Â ( list your support for your evaluation of the authorâ€™s main claim)Â
because ______________, ______________________, and ______________________. Â
The main claim should summarize your reaction to your selected reading and your supporting points. Remember that a strong thesis statement should contain a main claim and three supporting points to back up the main claim.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
- Identify a main claim that relates to the selected work.
- Identify three relevant key points in support of your claim.
Guidelines for Submission
Save your work in a Word document and include a page with references. It must be written in
MLA or APA format. Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.

â€œWhy the Beach is a Bummerâ€
The article I chose to read is â€œWhy the Beach is a Bummerâ€ by Roxane Gay. Roxane wrote this article to explain to her readers why she does not like the beach despite her looking forward to the summer every year. She initially started off by describing the things most of us look forward to when thinking about the summer and being able to enjoy the beach like beach reads, fruity drinks, crystal clear water and warm weather. Roxane then went on to expound on the realities of spending time at the beach in her opinion and why she is not a fan of spending time there. Some of the reasons she spoke of was the sand in her crevices, in fact she doesnâ€™t like sand at all, sticky children, inadequate bathing suits riding up in all the wrong places, filthy water, pets and she is not an animal person, and the fact that these days if you donâ€™t have the perfect â€œbeach bodyâ€ you may end up on social media getting made a mockery of. She also mentioned the big plans she always makes for the summer but instead ends up at home binge watching â€œBarefoot Contessaâ€. The audience Roxane Gay is trying to reach are people who view the beach scene similarly to the way she does to let them know they are not alone. Some potential challenges she may face with this article is the fact that some people genuinely enjoy the beach and may not agree or like the way she talks about something they find pleasant and delightful.
Gay, Roxane. “Why the beach is a bummer.”Â
