How to Write an Effective Thesis Statement

Historical Research Paper Grade 8



Formula: Specific Topic + Angle/Attitude/Argument = Thesis


Basic:
Choose three or four sub topics that you will be covering and list them in your thesis in the order in which you will present them.
Example: John Wilkes Booth’s premeditation, successful assassination of Abraham Lincoln, escape, and eventual death remains a tragic event in history.
Advanced:
Informative
The carefully executed plan for Abraham Lincoln’s assassination left Americans wondering why John Wilkes Booth, a handsome and extremely successful actor, would carry out such a heinous plot.
Opinionated/Persuasive
Considering the premeditation, acquisition of accomplices, and the ease with which the event was executed, the question of John Wilkes Booth’s sanity cannot even be considered when remembering the death of an American President.
