Question:

What is the proper way to write a thesis statement?

Joëlle K.
Answer:

For most essays, your thesis statement should be at the end of your introduction paragraph and should tell your reader the claim that you're making and how, specifically, you will back up that claim. For example, if I were writing a paper to explain why exercising is good for people, my thesis might look like this: Exercising is beneficial to people because it decreases the likelihood of contracting many diseases, creates strong, tight-knit communities and improves overall health. Here, I made the claim that exercising is beneficial and then gave three reasons why this is true. I will then take these main points and use them in my paper to back up and prove my main claim.

Question:

How does the feminist movement use conflict theory to explain their cause?

Joëlle K.
Answer:

Conflict theory says that those who are in power are the ones who control and therefore distribute the resources in society. The feminist movement sheds light on the fact that women are not treated equally to men and conflict theory fits into this because, historically, men are the people who have mostly been in power and can therefore control what women do.

Question:

How do I cite a source that's cited within the source I'm using in APA format?

Joëlle K.
Answer:

Let's say that you're reading a book by Jones and the book quotes a magazine article by Brodderick. The book that you are reading is considered a primary source and the magazine that's quoted in it would be the secondary source. If you don't have access to the magazine itself, you will list the book in your references and in-text will look like this: According to Brodderick (2015), citations are usually really logical (as cited in Jones, 2017). You'll notice that you give credit to Brodderick, but let the reader know that you found the information in Jones's book.
