Without giving your essay an appropriate structure, you are not going to get a high grade. All the information has to be provided in an understandable and coherent manner and all the ideas that you announce have to be followed by argumentation. That is why, when writing the strengths of the person, you need to give your readers evidences of why you think so immediately, otherwise nobody will believe you. Look for events and situations that had ever happened to Malcolm X and figure out in which situation he made an impression of a strong personality. On the other hand, if you are arguing that he had weaknesses, look for proper proofs, too. Every point that you provide has to be supported. This is what writing an essay is about. At the same time, in order to make your essay as interesting as possible, you may not tell only one side of the person that you are writing about, but instead, devote each paragraph to such features that characterize him in a different manner.
Both Russell and Frege recognized that natural language did not always, on the surface at any rate, behave like symbolic logic. Its elementary propositions, for example, were not always determinately true or false; some were not truth-functional, or compositional, at all (such as those in ‘opaque contexts’ like “Mary believes she has a little lamb”) and so on. In ‘On Denoting’ Russell proposed that despite misleading surface appearances, many ( ideally, all ) of the propositions of ordinary language could nevertheless be rewritten as transparently truth-functional propositions (that is, those that can be the arguments of truth-functions, and whose values are determinately either true or false , as given by their truth-conditions). That is, he argued, they could be ‘analyzed’ in such a way as to reveal the true logical form of the proposition, which may be obscured beneath the surface grammatical form of the proposition.
The thesis statement sets the tone of the paper, which is why it is crucial that it’s conveyed properly. A thesis statement requires you to understand the underlying rhetorical message from its’ given context to determine if it appealed to its’ intended audience. Using that information you should decide whether or not the context was successful or unsuccessful in achieving its goal and what strategies it employed in doing so. It should encompass the main idea and the goal of the context, and include your purpose in writing this paper. All of these things should be incorporated into your thesis in few words as needed so that the reader knows what’s in store without actually being in the “store” (your article). A strong thesis will do all that and be well structured, organized by the progression of the paper. This should successfully set the pace for the rest of your paper.
