the ivory tower?
Mick & his students extraordinaire. I thought it was too bad
the kid worked up the nerve to ask. I mean, just imagine the papers
Mick could have had the pleasure of grading...)
So make sure your thesis is stated explicitly and foregrounded at the
beginning of your paper. Make sure I immediately understand the claims
you make in each paragraph by making clear, again--EXPLICIT, claims at
their beginning. Make sense? Student: Dr. Souders? Mick: Yep? Got a question? Go ahead. Student: Doesn’t “explicit” mean, like, something…like rude? Or like pornography?
