Explanation of how poco theory approaches the chosen themes

I. Introduction
A. Firstly, concise explanation of how poco theory approaches the chosen themes B. Secondly, concise explanation of how the two themes relate to one another C. Thirdly, thesis statement that presents a central insight about the themes     (Central questions to have in mind:      What does the literature reveal about how these themes function together?         How does this help us better understand colonization or colonial relationships?)

II. One point to support/explain the thesis
A. Firstly, a topic sentence that presents the point

B. Secondly, a detail or brief passage from the literature that illustrates this point
C. Thirdly, a follow-up explanation of that evidence [repeat A-C if there’s more evidence]
D. Fourthly, a sentence connecting this evidence/explanation back to your thesis

III. Another point to support/explain the thesis
A. Topic sentence that presents the point B. A detail or brief passage from the literature that illustrates this point
C. A follow-up explanation of that evidence [repeat A-C if there’s more evidence]
D. A sentence connecting this evidence/explanation back to your thesis

IV. Another point to support/explain the thesis
A. Firstly, a topic sentence that presents the point

B. A detail or brief passage from the literature that illustrates this point

C. A follow-up explanation of that evidence [repeat A-C if there’s more evidence]

D. Lastly, a sentence connecting this evidence/explanation back to your thesis

V. Conclusion

A. Return to the central idea with emphasis on how it relates to colonization   (Central questions to have in mind: So what? Why are these ideas valuable to know?)
Broader advice:
–          If you have a lot to say about how poco theory approaches the themes and how they fit together, you could also put that into its own paragraph just after the introduction. In that case, make sure the thesis still appears clearly at the end of the intro.

–          There isn’t a magical number of supporting points for an essay, so include more or fewer body paragraphs as needed.

–          For textual evidence, avoid bringing in several extended passages. Just a brief phrase of wording can often do the job, and the key is to have an effective balance between the evidence and your own explanations/analysis.

–          It’s not strictly required to have evidence from all three stories in every point. Mix and match based on what’s most relevant/compelling so long as each story is represented somewhere in the analysis.
