A Guide for Creating an elaborate Thesis Statement

Students and teachers alike both have issues when it comes to thesis statements. The problem that teachers have is that their students write thesis statements that are too broad or too narrow. Teachers also notice that many of their students think they are writing a thesis, but end up writing a fact. Students complain that they do not understand how to write a thesis. As teachers work hard to help their students understand how to write a thesis, there are always a few students who continue to struggle with the concept.

What is a Thesis

A thesis statement is the controlling statement for the essay. The ultimate goal of the essay is to prove the opinion that is given in the thesis. In most essays the thesis comes at the end of the introductory paragraph or section. Over the years, teachers have developed many different techniques for teaching the thesis statement. Regardless of the method you learned, as you grow and develop as a writer, you will need to write more elaborate thesis statements.

How to Begin the Thesis

In order to craft a thesis statement, it is always helpful to begin with the words, “I think.” After you have written your thesis statement and you like the way it looks, you will need to drop the “I think” from the sentence. For example, you could write “I think students need to learn to write thesis statements.” Then, edit the sentence into “Students need to learn to write thesis statements.”

Outlining to Elaborate

After you have the basic structure of the thesis, you will need to learn how to add more to thesis to make it just right for your essay. In order to create an elaborate thesis, you need to have an outline. This way, you can pull information from the outline and add it to your thesis. For example, if you have an outline about why students need to write thesis statements, your first paragraph might be about what happens with essays do not have thesis statements. The second paragraph might about how students can be creative in their thesis. So, your new thesis might be: “Students need to learn to write a thesis because they can be creative and they will prevent their essays from falling apart.”

When your thesis is elaborate enough that your readers know what is coming, it is much easier to stay focused on your essay topic. The formula stays the same for nearly every elaborate thesis, too.
