1. Dual Enrollment Opportunities in high school
  2.  Dual enrollment displays negative effects on the students partaking in it 
  3. Dual enrollment also displays negative effects on the students who are in either college or high-school classes with the students
  4. Dual enrollment affects both students taking it, students in high school with these students, and students in college with these students. 
  5.  Because the high school system is power-driven and prioritizes reputation-raising statistics high school administration manipulates their students by misguiding them to believe it is in their best interest to endeavor in dual enrollment courses and advanced placement classes when in reality, the many overlooked downfalls of these programs go unnoticed and are much higher in number when compared to the limited benefits.

    Thanks for posting early, Princess.
    I’ve placed your post in the two required categories: Author Name (princess) and Assignment Name (Hypothesis).
    This is perfectly formatted, and your classmates can use it as a template.
    I’ll be back later to respond to the actual content.

    This is a good start, Princess. I see how nicely you narrowed your broad topic to what looks like a much more focused and demonstrable claim.

    The grammar of your sixth step is difficult to follow. I’d like to suggest a paraphrase first:

    Students who do not pursue Dual Enrollment Opportunities miss out on the chance to practice college-level material while still in high school.

    That’s pretty much just the reverse of number 4.

    Your number 5 is probably the more developed idea, actually, since it claims that Dual Enrollment improves student performance BOTH in high school and in college.

    The only aspect of this thesis that is a bit counterintuitive is that a program designed to improve college readiness has benefits for students who might never actually go to college.

    What do you think?

      I agree that the 6th is a little bit messy since I was trying to put all my ideas in one sentence. I also agree that it isn’t very counterintuitive however I didn’t think that there was a goal in implicating counterintuitivity. Do you think it is in my best interest to revise to make it more clear but also more counterintuitive?

        It’s definitely in your best interest to find a counterintuitive angle to your Hypothesis since that is the stated goal of the course. 🙂

        And, much as it would be comfortable to rest on a first draft, Princess, the early Hypothesis is DEFINITELY a work-in-progress even after you begin your actual research. The best way to proceed is almost always to conference with your Professor about your topic as a way to tease out the angle that might not be readily apparent.

        But by all means revise this post now and as often as you like. It’s a good start.

        DON’T replace this post with a new Hypothesis post. Just open it in Edit and revise, then Update. WordPress will save ALL your drafts so you don’t have to worry about losing your early work. I’ll show you how to retrieve it.
