so our thesis statement can be something like " The author develops his claim using 1,2, and 3?

1,2, and 3 being rhetorical devices

i would add a why, so like the author develops his claim using 1,2, and 3 in order to do whatever

like adams used 1,2, and 3 in order to motivate her son to have high aspirations

Got it thanks!!! you should be a fiveable helper haha

i wish lol

You must include details on what the author’s claim is, or else it looks like you don’t understand the prompt. So it could say “The author developes their claim that hippos are dangerous animals”

Be sure to clearly state the author’s purpose (don’t just say “his claim.”) This could start with the phrase “In order to (purpose)…”.
