In our last publication, we saw how to read and interpret the writing proposal efficiently and efficiently.

Today, we will address another very important point:

HOW TO ORGANIZE THE INITIAL IDEAS

First of all, we need to emphasize that as you read and interpret the theme, many ideas will pop up in your mind. So it is important to know how to use them.

Any ideas that pop up need to be noted. Organize them into topics, not necessarily in the order in which they appear in the text. The most important thing is to register them (separate a corner of your test to do this, okay?).

Then, as the reading of the intervention proposal unfolds, write down everything that comes up from ideas in your head. These ideas should be noted in topics, not long and complex periods.

After reading and recording your ideas, think about the thesis.

WHAT DO YOU WILL DEFEND?

From this, go back to the ideas you wrote down initially. Which ones help you defend your point of view? Select two.

THIS SELECTION MUST TAKE INTO ACCOUNT SOME POINTS:

  • Does the selected idea match a consistent argument?
  • Is this idea directly related to the thesis? Will you defend it and convince your reader?
  • Can you develop this idea satisfactorily?

This last point is fundamental. You should discuss about what you have mastery. If you have any questions regarding the selected argument, do not write about it. Scratch it and go to the next.

So proceed to perform the procedures to which we refer today and in the last post, because, this way, you will not run the risk of getting away from the topic or of tangentiating it and avoiding the famous ‘white’, because you will have recourse to some annotated ideas.

PROCEDURES:

  • Read the proof.
  • Select the most important words.
  • Write down the ideas that come up.
  • Establish the thesis that will be defended.
  • Choose two ideas to develop and defend your point of view.

In our next post, we will discuss the importance of the draft for its textual production.
