The Thesis Statement

A thesis question/statement shows what you intend to research and discuss in your paper. Creating such a statement can help you by:

  • Allowing you to focus on the right resources by sharply defining your topic, and
  • Give structure and direction to your paper once you're ready to begin writing.
  • In general, once you've created a brief, focused thesis question, you're ready to begin searching for materials.
  • To help clarify creating a thesis statement, here's a short video from Tulsa Community College in Oklahoma that you might find helpful. Additional help can be found via the Web links on the left.
