Develop a Claim

Write an introductory paragraph in which you develop a claim that will later be the basis for your Unit 2 essay:

"How does my selected activity or characteristic affect success in an Internet-based college course?"

Remember to include a strong thesis statement, which is a one-sentence claim or argument of the position you will take in your essay. Try to go beyond simply announcing your topic and listing the discussion points you plan to make in the body of your paper; keep in mind that you will work to prove your thesis in the body of your essay.
