What is a thesis statement?
- A sentence in which you present the point of view of your essay.
- Characteristics of a thesis statement:
- Contains the topic of your essay
- Is not a fact, but a point of view on the topic
- A sentence at the end of the introduction
- Gives some specific arguments that will be explored in the rest of the essay.
- A thesis statement is not a question or an opinion (so, do not use I/we/I think)
