So, you want to write an essay? It’s not going to be easy unless you learn how to write a winning thesis statement. Here are some clues that should help you out.
- Learn what a thesis statement is
- Fins exemplary examples of them
- Notice what makes them better than the average
- Apply your new found knowledge to practice statements
- Ask someone how you’ve done
- Allocate enough time for picking a great topic
You would be amazed how many people do not know. Every essay starts with an introduction. It serves to direct the reader mentally to what the paper will be about. At or near the end of that intro is a single line that explains succinctly what you are proposing with the essay. It is basically your introduction’s closer. If that explanation is still not clear enough you can check as many sources as you need to until you find one that really works for you. Just make sure you know.
Look for the best examples available. Your teacher should have a few laying around that you can make use of in a pinch. If he or she won’t share, ask your classmates or siblings. If that doesn’t work either, the internet has everything. It’s just a matter of how hard you look and how persistent you are.
One you have a list of great samples you can start to analyze them for their best traits. Write them all down. Make reference to them often and see how they can be combined to better effects.
This is the best way to see if you really can use what you learned. Write entire introductions and try to apply the best possible thesis statements to them.
You can’t judge your own work. There is no way you can stop yourself from being biased. Ask a teacher or tutor to tell you how close you are getting to what you want to achieve.
A bad topic can ruin the entire essay. Save yourself from having to salvage a paper by making sure it never goes down that track in the first place. This also a stage where you can benefit from feedback.
On the bright side, you can also get some god information from text books. Between all of the sources available you can come up with something great.
