The grandmother statement

The grandmother statement
This is a simple statement of the main point of a paper. It's called a grandmother statement because the statement needs to be in words that your grandmother or older relative who know nothing about your topic can understand. This is not easy to do. If you can't get to it, however, it is a good sign that you don't have a clear idea about your central idea.
