Thesis Change affecting my career

Using the Unit 6 Discussion Board feedback you received from your classmates and instructor on your thesis and outline, as well as the following downloadable Essay Draft Chart, create a 4-paragraph rough draft of your Academic Essay. Your draft should not use any sources at this point and instead should answer questions like: Why do you think this change has happened? or What effects do you think this change has had? Use your own thoughts and ideas to explore these questions but also try to not rely on informal first person (I, me, my, we, us, our) or second person (you, your) and instead attempt to write objectively and formally by using third person.
Think of this draft as an opportunity to try out the hypothesis you established in your preliminary thesis, to explore and examine the point you want your paper to make about the change you have selected to write about, and to learn what you do and do not know and what you need to learn about your topic in order to more successfully write about it. 
Essay Draft Chart
Your 1 and ½ page double spaced draft should do the following: 

Paragraph 1

identify the change and its relevance
Establish your thesis about the cause or effect of the change 

(don’t worry, though, if you are having trouble writing an attention-grabbing introduction at this point–focus on your thesis)

Paragraph 2

establish Topic Sentence about first cause or effect
use paragraph development strategies like PIE to support the topic sentence and explain why you think this cause or effect is relevant 

Paragraph 3

Establish Topic Sentence about second cause or effect
use paragraph development strategies PIE to support the topic sentence and explain why you think this cause or effect is relevant

Paragraph 4

Establish Topic Sentence about third cause or effect
use paragraph development strategies like PIE to support the topic sentence and explain why you think this cause or effect is relevant

NOTE: In order to better prepare for the research process you will begin in Unit 7, brainstorm a list of specific research information you will need to locate during your research process in Unit 7 to support the ideas you drafted in Unit 6. Complete the following downloadable Research Plan Chart and include it at the end of your Unit 6 Assignment. This Research Plan Chart will help you identify the specific research information and evidence you will need to locate to support the ideas or claims in each of the body paragraphs of your draft.
