English 101
Thesis Statement
States the main idea of an argument
 Usually appears at the beginning of an
argumentative essay
 An effective thesis does these three things:

 It is arguable.
 It is clear.
 It is appropriately qualified.
1. A thesis should be arguable.

Your thesis should make an arguable assertion.
 An assertion is a probability or possibility, not a
certainty.
 Check this by taking the opposite position.

A fact is not an arguable assertion.
 An argument cannot be made either for or against this.

An expression of personal feeling or belief is not an
arguable assertion.
1. A thesis should be arguable.

The following is NOT a thesis statement:
 Early morning classes are not fun.

The following IS a thesis statement:
 Early morning classes may be counterproductive to
effective learning.
2. A thesis should be clear.

The wording of a thesis needs to be precise.
 Define your terms.
 Make sure the meaning of words or phrases is not
ambiguous.
 Make sure the wording of the thesis is specific and not
vague.
2. A thesis should be clear.

The following is NOT a clear thesis.
 Freedom should be the goal of every American.

The thesis could be made more clear by defining
what is meant by “freedom,” since the meaning
could be interpreted differently by different
people.
3. A thesis should be appropriately
qualified.
Qualifying your thesis will make your thesis more convincing
to readers.
 Qualify your thesis if you expect readers to challenge your
argument.
 The following are examples of qualifiers:









Probably
Likely
Seems
May
Apparently
Suggests
Could
Might
