1. Identify the thesis of the selected chapter. The thesis is the main point that the author is trying to convey to his reader.

In other words, what is the author’s interpretation of the subject/topic? For example, if the subject of the article is Tejanos in the Texas Revolution, you should identify the primary point (thesis) that the author is attempting to make about Tejanos in the Texas Revolution. Why were they important and why should we study them? Your identification of the thesis will consider the contents of the entire article and will not simple be a one sentence quote from the reading.

In this section of the form, you are to identify the main arguments and events that the author has included in the article that supports the overall thesis of the chapter (article). This information is usually found in the body of the chapter. What evidence does the author use to prove that his thesis is correct?
