Remember, a thesis statement is more than a topic sentence: it should clearly state your own position/argument and be original, debatable, and specific. Your audience will decide whether to read the rest of your paper based on how compelling they find your thesis. Check out the Writing Center's detailed resource for constructing thesis statements for more information.
