How to Make a Tentative Thesis

A thesis statement is a part of the essay (assignment) which explicitly tells readers what the essay is about, and what it intends to do. This is not something which has to be set in stone from the moment it has been written – you might find that your essay or dissertation more easily fits another thesis statement, and so change the statement itself. It should be introduced in the introduction, reiterated in full in the conclusion, and each paragraph should relate to it in some way, shape, or form, even if it is not mentioned specifically in the essay itself.

A thesis statement is a topic sentence with large; it sums up the essay, tells people what they are about to read, and encourages them to read on. A good thesis statement is something which draws people in, because it tells them about the essay they are about to read, and shows them something interesting. Thesis statements are very important for the overall essay, as they show the subject and overall approach, be it a new look at an old subject, or looking at a new subject using an older approach which may have been left behind for some time now.
