     Tips for Writing Thesis Statements


    1.Determine what kind of paper you are writing:

  • An analytical paper breaks down an issue or an idea into its component parts, evaluates the issue or idea, and presents this breakdown and evaluation to the audience. 

  • An expository (explanatory) paper explains something to the audience. 

  • An argumentative paper makes a claim about a topic and justifies this claim with specific evidence. 

  • The claim could be

  • an opinion

  • a policy proposal

  • an evaluation

  • a cause-and-effect statement

  • an interpretation. 

  • The goal of the argumentative paper is to convince the audience that the claim is true based on the evidence provided. If you are writing a text that does not fall under these three categories (e.g., a narrative), a thesis statement somewhere in the first paragraph could still be helpful to your reader.
    2. Your thesis statement should be specific—it should cover only what you will discuss in your paper and should be supported with specific evidence.
    3. The thesis statement usually appears at the end of the first paragraph of a paper.
    4. Your topic may change as you write, so you may need to revise your thesis statement to reflect exactly what you have discussed in the paper.
