What is a thesis statement

What is a thesis statement?

  • A thesis statement is a concise opinion statement that tells your reader what your essay will be about. It is a guide for your essay. It can be argued. It is in the first paragraph, and it is most likely the last sentence in the first paragraph.


Working thesis

Working Thesis

  • You should start with a “working” thesis. It is expected that you might have to revise your thesis in the process of writing your essay. The evidence you gather may lead you to a conclusion you didn't think you'd reach.
