CRAFTING THE THESIS STATEMENT: 

CRAFTING AN EFFECTIVE THESIS STATEMENT IS CENTRAL TO SOLID WRITING.  THE THESIS STATEMENT HAS THREE COMPONENTS:  TOPIC + POSITION + FORECAST

THE TOPIC IS THE ANCHOR OR THE TOPIC. THE POSITION SIGNALS YOUR SPECIFIC POSITION ON A GIVEN ISSUE.  THE FORECAST PREVIEWS THE SPECIFIC CLAIMS, EVIDENCE, YOU WILLUSE TO MAKE THE CASE FOR YOUR ARGUMENT.

EXAMPLE:

TOPIC:  THE 55MPH SPEED LIMIT

POSITION:  IS AN IMPRACTICAL LAW

FORECAST:  THAT DOES NOT SAVE LIVES, FUEL, OR NERVES.

DIRECTIONS:  CLOSELY REVIEW EACH OF THESE THESIS STATEMENTS, ANALYZING WHETHER THEY USE THE PARADIGM, OR MODEL ABOVE.  THEN, REWRITE EACH STATEMENT (I WANT TOSEE ONLY ONE SENTENCE, NOT THE THREE LINES, LIKE THE MODEL ABOVE0, TO REFLECT THEMORE EFFECTIVE THESIS STATEMENT, BASED ON THE THESIS SEGMENTS I PRESENT ABOVE. IF YOU THINK THE STATEMENT IS FINE AS SET FORTH, STATE THIS, AND EXPLAIN WHY YOU THINK SO.

1.  A SURROGATE MOTHER MUST SURRENDER THE BABY IF SHE HAS A CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENT.

2.  THE CAFETERIA WAS IN A DREADFUL PLACE IN THE BASEMENT.

3.  AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL IS A NON-EFFECTUAL GROUP.

4.  THE DEATH PENALTY IS NOT ABOUT JUSTICE. RATHER, IT IS ABOUT REVENGE.

5.  EATING VEGETABLES IS A MORE HEALTHY DIET THAT EATING MEAT BECAUSE VEGETABLES CONTAIN LESS FAT, WHICH CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES.
