Question:

What makes a good thesis statement?

Inactive
Gail S.
Answer:

A good thesis statement states your subject and what you are going to say about it. For example, if you're asked to write an essay about a person you admire, it is not sufficient to write "My mother is a good person?" This thesis does not really give any direction for the reader and the writer. The thesis should serve as an outline of your essay. Ask yourself, "What is so good about my mother?" Then make a list of those examples and include them in your thesis. You might end up with something like: "My mother, has devoted her life to her family and her church by sacrificing her time and money.

Gail S.
Answer:

The first part of a good essay is the introduction which includes the thesis statement. The thesis states what your essay is going to be about. The introduction leads up to the thesis. The next part is the body which is 1 + paragraphs. Each paragraph discusses one part of your essay, with a topic sentences in the beginning, and proof as the rest of the paragraph The last part is the conclusion, which can be the hardest part of the essay to write. It can include a call to action or simply a summary of the most import parts of the essay.
