Entry 9: Thesis Statements


Definition: it is the single, specific claim that your essay supports.
A good thesis statement is: not simply an observation, a question or a promise. It includes a topic, a precise opinion and reasoning.

Parts of a Thesis Statement
1-    The subject: basically, the topic of the essay
2-    The precise opinion: your opinion on the topic
3-    The blueprint of reasons: where you show your readers how you plan to argue and prove your opinion.

The blueprint is only effective if:
-         I explain what I mean about each blueprint point in the body paragraphs
-         I provide detailed examples for each blueprint point.

When you are composing thesis statements, you need to know the following:

-         The topic (what your paper will deal with)
-         Your claim (what you think about the topic)
-         Reasons that support your claim (three points that will persuade your readers to believe what you’ve just claimed about the topic)
