Okay, let’s move on to those 110 good thesis statements I promised.
I’ve divided the list of thesis statements by various types of papers.
Although the scope of your paper might seem overwhelming at the start, generally the narrower the thesis the more effective your argument will be.
Your thesis or claim must be supported by evidence.
Others might feel that we should be spending more money on education.
Still others could argue that corporations, not the government, should be paying to limit pollution.
There are just too many questions that the claim leaves open.
The author could not cover all of the topics listed above, yet the generality of the claim leaves all of these possibilities open to debate.
An argumentative or persuasive piece of writing must begin with a debatable thesis or claim.
In other words, the thesis must be something that people could reasonably have differing opinions on.
