Create a Thesis and Outline To prepare for success in your Unit 6 Assignment, which is a draft of your cause or effect essay without sources, create a thesis and outline that begins to flesh out the ideas you established in your thesis. INITIAL POST Review your topic choice and feedback in Unit 5 and what you learned in Unit 6 Lab. Use the following downloadable Thesis and Outline Chart to generate ideas and create a specific thesis and sentence outline about the change in your field you have chosen to address in your Academic Essay Assignment. Then, copy and paste your thesis and outline to the Discussion Board. This outline will become the basis for the draft you submit in Unit 6, so the more specific the information in your outline, the better prepared you will be for success on that assignment.

Also refer to and cite specific Unit reading concepts in your post to help show you are applying these concepts and to give you practice with using and citing sources.
