Chapter 1 Basic Knowledge for Thesis Writing

Why should we write the thesis?

To write a thesis before graduation is a must for every university graduate.

By writing a thesis, we may get some experience and some basic methods for further theoretical study and research and the ability to solve problems.

It is the reflection of a student’s study in college.

Whether a student has such an ability to write a thesis or to solve problems in his/her field is one basis for a unit to accept him/her or not.

How long should we prepare for writing a thesis?

One year or so

What do we need when we write a thesis?

Firstly, for English major, most important of all, it is English knowledge and ability that based on your language skills, especially writing skill and grammar knowledge.

Secondly, the way of writing is also important.

A good title, some good ideas to support thesis statement, right language and standard format are what we need.

The language style is something that we should pay much attention to, for example:

Wording: we prefer big word to small one;

Sentence: Long sentences are quite expectable.

How do we write a thesis? How many steps should we follow?

Generally speaking, when we write a thesis, we follow 10 steps:

1. Choose a subject: that is, what you are going to

write about. For English major, we may apply:

2. Choose a title/Title a paper;

3. Collect materials for reference in writing;

4. Analyze the collected materials;

5. Sort out the data and arguments;

6. List references;

7. Make up an outline;

8. 1—3 drafts;

9. Proofread;

10. The last version.

What subjects may we choose to write?

The Practice and Theory of Translation

Language and Culture

Chapter 2 Subject and Title

How to Choose a Suitable Subject

Whenever you plan and write a paper, you should keep these questions in mind: What is my subject and what do I know about it?

Choose a subject that you care about and know about (or can find out about).

Who is my audience?

What you say about your subject depends greatly on who reads it. You must choose a subject that will interest your audience and try to present it interestingly.

What is my purpose?

You always communicate for a purpose—either to inform, to persuade, or to entertain.

What must You Write in a Thesis?

In the limited space of a thesis, you can’t say everything, so you must settle on the most important, most relevant, and most interesting.

Factors Influencing the Choice:

There are several factors which will influence your decision on which subject you are going to write about:

Interest

Experience

Science value

Ability

Scope of knowledge

Purpose…

How to Get a Title?

We have two ways to get a title:

Given by teachers

Designed by yourself

They both have their advantages. For the former, you will have a definite direction to guide you to the end, while, for the latter, it can be more flexible for you and everything depends on yourself.

What Is a Good Title?

A good title, usually created after some paragraphs or a theme is written, does two things:

1. It suggests what the subject of the thesis will be;

2. It sparks the reader’s interest

Some Basic Kinds of Titles

No-nonsense descriptive title: E.g.:

Advantages and Disadvantages of Multimedia Teaching

Two-part titles E.g.:

Sugar: The Hidden Drug

Rhetorical question. Then answer the question in your theme. E.g.:

What can be done about CET-4?

Some Basic Kinds of Titles

Relate the title to the method of development used :

Descriptive: Portrait of a Teacher

Illustration: Three Roles I Play

Comparison: Crazy English: The New All

中国论文网-英文版

Physical Response Approach

Contrast: Pleasures and Problems of Owning

a Computer

Definition: A Definition of CLT

Persuasion: The Need for Discipline in

University

Classification: Three Types of Education

Process: How to Teach Young Children

English 字串2

How long should a title usually be?

A title is usually four to five words long and is rarely an entire sentence. (1—10 words is more practical.)

Notice:We can’t write anything with the title “On…”, because this small “on” is too big for us.

Notice:The title is centered on the page above the body of the thesis and separated from it by one inch.
