What is a thesis statement and why do I need it for my essay?
Think about your thesis statement as the heart of your essay. A thesis statement is an argument that you as the writer are making about your topic. A thesis statement should be something that can be argued or debated (not an already established fact), and it will generally include your main reasons for why you believe it to be true. The rest of your essay should work toward proving that statement. Without a thesis statement, the essay lacks focus, and it may leave your readers wondering what the point of the essay is.

How do I know what is considered an academic source for my research paper and how do I find quality academic sources?
Academic sources are generally written by an expert in the field. Credit is given to any resources used to write the article, so you should see a reference page or bibliography. You should also look for peer-reviewed sources, which means that the article has been reviewed for accuracy by others in the field. These sources are usually aimed at an audience in the field and should be non-biased. Most colleges and many libraries will have access to academic databases full of articles on a variety of topics for their students and patrons to use.
Which word fits best in this sentence? _______ playing in the field right now. a)Their b)They're c)There
b)They're Why? Words that sound the same but are spelled differently can be confusing. They're is a contraction for they are. Try saying, "they are playing in the field right now." If "they are" makes sense in the sentence, they're is the right form of the word to use.
