Thesis statements

What’s the big idea?

slide2

A thesis statement is not

a statement of fact.

“Chihuahuas are a small

breed of dog.”

slide3

A thesis statement is your essay’s controlling idea. It’s the big idea.

It’s a statement that you

need and intend to prove in the essay.

slide4

First, think of your thesis statement as a debating question:

“Resolved: Dogs make God-awful pets.”

Next, drop the “resolved.”

slide5

“Dogs make

God-awful pets.”

slide6

Then sharpen the thesis.

Add the word “because” or

one of its equivalents and

finish the thought.

slide7

“Dogs make God-awful pets –

they require time-consuming TLC,

they’re slobbering mess makers, and

they cost an arm and a leg to care for.”
