ENG 122 week 3 Discussion 2


Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 2


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


Writing   Your Conclusion Workshop



  • Before drafting your initial      post, take time to reflect on your closing argument. Does your conclusion      reemphasize the important points that you have made in your essay? Have      you summarized your main points and rephrased your thesis statement? Do      the final lines of your conclusion leave your readers with something      interesting to consider?

Write (due Thursday, Day 3)

  • In 200 to 300 words, share your      concluding paragraph. Your conclusion should reiterate the position of      your paper by summarizing your main points and rephrased thesis statement.      In a final paragraph, share your original thesis statement.
  • In a separate paragraph,      identify and explain the following: 
    • What is your conclusion’s       closing argument?
    • In addition, note any       questions you may have regarding your conclusion (e.g., rephrased thesis       statement, summarized main points, etc.) so your classmates can assist       you. 

Guided Response (due Monday, Day 7)

  • In 125 to 200 words each,      discuss and critique the concluding paragraphs of at least two of your      classmates. Please identify, analyze, and discuss the following: 
    • Rephrased thesis statement
    • Main points of the argument       (e.g., are the main points summarized?)
    • Closing argument (e.g., was       the thesis proven?)
    • Questions and concerns       regarding the development of the closing argument 
  • Substantiate your ideas and      suggestions with specific examples from your classmates’ concluding      paragraphs and the assigned reading materials.
