The Difference Between a Thesis in an Open Response and an Essay

Dear Aunt Adeline,

What is the difference between the thesis in an open response and an essay? Can you please help me out?


Dear Pleasehelpme,

Sure I can help you. The difference is in an open response the thesis is the first sentence of the first paragraph. In an essay the thesis is the last sentence in the first sentence. Just remember though, if the topic is about a book always remember to state the title and the author.

Current Event

You were probably sitting in a classroom or at your house when you thought today is a slow day. Well, you had no idea that a person in Florida has been committing a crime.

A man in Florida was caught trying to steal a snake by hiding it in his pants. This happened in St. Petersburg in Florida.

The owner of the store was Steve Silk. He told that WFLA that the criminal (Treder) had stolen other animals before on other moments. The store owner had not noticed until now.

They caught Travis Treder by checking the surveillance cameras.

They also say that he had stolen things worth of thousands of dollars and the baby python would have cost $150.
