A Guide To Academic Writing: 10 Good Thesis Statement Examples For Papers


In my years in high school, I would be required to do papers. It is going to be a rather difficult piece of work that is going to require a lot of readings around the subject. However, if I manage to deliver a high quality paper, I am surely going to impress my tutor and will definitely get a good mark for it! I am also required to write a thesis statement for my work and some may wonder, what is a thesis statement? Don’t worry though – that’s what this guide is for. Here am 10 examples of what I need in my thesis statement for my work:

Tell the reader how I am going to interpret the information
In my work, I should have a clear direction of where I want to direct my readers. That’s why I need to inform them how I am going to interpret it.
Should serve as a road map
This means my thesis statement should be clear enough to show my reader what I write my college paper about.

Answer the question!
I must have a question asked if I am write my paper – so answer it by myself. Obviously use some sources to back up what I am saying.

Makes a claim
My thesis statement should be making some claims for a certain subject. That’s why it should be making some claims! It should also be challenge by others as well!
Very short
As a matter of fact, my thesis statement should be very short and concise. It shouldn’t even be longer than three sentences (even one is enough!)
Be specific
Never write a vague paper! The same applies to my thesis statement. It should be very specific about what I am trying to say, so don’t make general claims!
So what?
That’s what most readers say when they read something. So when I write my research paper it be able to answer the ‘so what’ question. That’s why my thesis statement has to be well thought out and it should be interesting my reader.
Again, everything I say has to be backed up by evidence. Any claims that have no grounds will not be persuasive, so bear that in mind!
If my reader’s first impression is ‘how’, then I know there’s something wrong and I must make my focus a bit tighter!
Similar to ‘how’, if I reader doesn’t understand what’s going on, my paper is a bit too open-ended and I might want to improve on it.
