Step 3-Developing Your Thesis

The next, and perhaps the most important, step is to develop your thesis. Your thesis states the purpose of your essay. Without a thesis statement, your reader does not know what you are setting out to prove. And without a thesis statement, it would be very difficult to organize your essay with clarity and coherence. Don’t be intimidated by the task of formulating what is to be the crux of your essay. It can be quite simple. Just use the formulas below:

THESIS FOR COMPARISON – CONTRAST ESSAY (formula 1-1):
I believe that Item A, __________, is better than Item B, __________, because
1) __________, 2) __________, 3) __________.

THESIS FOR CAUSE – EFFECT ESSAY (formula 1-2):
If _____________, then _____________, because
1) __________, 2) __________, 3) __________.

THESIS FOR DEFINITION ESSAY (formula 1-3):
By definition, __________ possess(es) these qualities: 1) __________,
2) __________, 3) __________ which have a positive effect because
A) __________, B) __________, C) __________.
