A thesis is just a fancy way of making a statement of what you believe and why you believe it. When you write an essay, you MUST clearly state your thesis in your introduction paragraph.It needs to be there.If you don’t have a thesis, you don’t have a quality essay.The reason you write an entire essay is to prove your thesis statement.You NEED to remember this. Tattoo it on your face.
Thesis Statement – A thesis is a direct statement that explains the topic of your essay, what you believe about that topic, and why you believe it.
A thesis statement is made up of three different parts. Every thesis needs these three things:
1) Identification (What is the topic you are talking about?)
2) Claim (What do you believe about the topic?)
3) Direction (What are the main reasons you will use to support your claim?
This will basically outline the body paragraphs of your essay.)
You will need to form these three parts into a complete argumentative sentence:
Identification of Topic + Claim (belief about topic) + Direction (ex: reason 1, reason 2, and reason 3.)
**Before you write your thesis, decide what you plan to argue and determine some DIFFERENT & GENERAL ways in which you can prove your opinion. Sometimes it is easier to argue a certain side of an issue, and it might be smart to take the side that is easier to prove.
