Keep your paper topic narrow (but not so narrow that there are no scholarly sources available on the topic). Why the topic is interesting and important: Address how you will focus the topic.
If you choose a topic that is not of interest to you, it will show in your paper.
A thesis statement is a one- to two-sentence statement that presents the main idea and makes an assertion about your issue.
You may have a longer thesis for much longer essays, but one to two sentences is a good general guideline.
Finally, how much time do you have to write your paper?
The earlier you begin your paper, the more thorough the treatment your topic will receive.
The subject, or topic, of an essay might be World War II or Moby Dick; a thesis must then offer a way to understand the war or the novel. v) is usually a single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph that presents your argument to the reader.
The rest of the paper, the body of the essay, gathers and organizes evidence that will persuade the reader of the logic of your interpretation.
If you can’t begin your paper early in the semester, consider limiting your topic so you can deal with it adequately.
