The second article is also called “Childhood Obesity,” but that one is written by Dulcie McBride. You will find the third article yourself, and you must submit it to me for approval.
In the first paragraph, you will summarize the topic, and the last sentence of your first paragraph will be your thesis statement. Your thesis statement should include both the overall idea of your essay and the specific points that you want to address, in the order that you address them.

Instead of saying “I think that this is a good idea,” you would say “This is a good idea.”

1. Title: Animals Are People, Author: Mike Jones, Publication: Pet Monthly, Year: 2011
2. Title: We Love Pets, Author: Bob Smith, Publication: Dogs and Cats, Year: 2013
3. Title: Just as Human, Author: Tim Conway, Publication: Animals United, Year: 2012

Example of a Summary Paragraph
During the last decade, many people have made the case that animals deserve the same rights as humans. Mike Jones wrote an article entitled “Animals Are People,” which was published in Pet Monthly in 2011. Bob Smith wrote the article “We Love Pets,” which appeared in Dogs and Cats in 2013, and Tim Conway wrote the article “Just as Human,” which appeared in Animals United in 2012. In all three of those articles, the authors make the case that animals are worthy of dignity and respect, just like any human being; they believe that the differences between humans and animals are so small that they shouldn’t affect how people treat them. Jones focuses on the legal aspect of the issue. He believes that the law should have stricter punishments for people who abuse animals. Smith, however, is more concerned with the social side of the problem; his article focused on making animal cruelty socially unacceptable. Conway concentrated on explaining the consequences of treating animals inhumanely. According to him, it weakens a society’s morality. While it is true that human beings should have compassion and kindness towards animals, animals do not deserve the same status as people because of the implications that such a change would have on society, the current legal code, and the resources that it would take to accomplish such a goal.
