Thesis Challenge!

The little video presentation below is about five minutes long. The woman speaker seems to have a clear idea in mind.

Does she state her idea in a clear, bold, and memorable thesis? If yes, what is the thesis? If no, can you put her idea into a clear, bold, and memorable thesis statement?

Watch the video. Pick out her thesis or write her idea in your own words. Try to make it simple, bold, and memorable. Leave the thesis as a comment to this blog or email it to me at sspubs@xmission.com. I will give you 15 points of extra credit (enough to make up for one missed class period).

  1. Thanks for sharing this video, I really enjoyed the speaker. i love the inscription on the book, "with the admiration of what you are building when no one sees." I feel like her thesis statement is this.

    No sacrifice is too small for God to notice.

    I promise I didn't copy Brittany.

  3. Using words from her speech I would say here thesis statement is from the inscription in the book, "With admiration for the greatness of what you are building, when no one sees."

    If I was to having a thesis statement for this presentation it would be, "God sees you when no one else does or can."
