Introduction & Thesis (Clarification)

In the presentation, the below sentence was given as the example of a great “Thesis + Intro.” I was wondering if you suggest then that we should only have a single sentence (if we don’t address the broader contextualization of the work) for our intro/thesis because it addresses the work, the author, the message, the purpose, the audience, and the strategies/devices.

In the (genre) {title} by [author], effectively communicates ~message~ in order to [purpose with audience movement] by strategy 1, strategy 2, and strategy 3.

Hopefully that made sense!!

Thought the rubric says is can be two sentences that are side-by-side, many readers recommend using a single sentence for the thesis statement. According to the rubric, you should be good as long as you give the rhetorical choices and a defensible response to the prompt.

Okay great! Thank you!!
