today was very helpful in terms of thesis information and confirming my faith in my own thesis (which you and the class seemed to like). thanks.

I agree; it was very helpful to see all the different styles and to talk about the pros and cons of each. I learned that I need to make mine more direct and clear. I like seeing the ideas of the other students – we have a great group of people!

Going over the thesis statements as a class was beneficial. Although my thesis wasn't that bad, I re-wrote it completely and it turned out even better. Thanks!
