In a synthesis essay, the thesis expresses your reaction to the sources; it may express your level of agreement or disagreement or indicate the ways in which you will extend or build on the sources. Example of Synthesis: See the long paragraph that begins at the bottom of page 301 in Read, Reason, Write.
