What is the difference between the thesis and topic sentences?
The thesis is the overarching argument or point of your essay or paper. It is specific, clear, and typically the last sentence of the first paragraph.

What is identity negotiation theory and how does it shape the way we navigate the world?
Identity negotiation theory was coined by Stella Ting-Toomey and refers to the ways in which our identity emerges in social interactions, especially across different cultures. There are personal, social, cultural, and ethnic identities. Personal identities are the unique characteristics we hold as individuals which are first developed within family interactions. This development becomes a very important part of social identity. Social identity refers to group and cultural affiliations, our attachments to a larger group such as a church, a region of the country, a university, etc. Lastly, ethnic identity refers to association with ancestry or a group history across multiple generations and is usually connected to race, language, origin, etc.
