1. A thesis statement must be an opinion (not a fact).
2. A thesis statement should not be too highly opinionated or emotional.
3. A thesis statement should not be too general; it should be specific.
4. A thesis statement should not be an "announcement".
Of course, you do not have to create your own thesis statement. You may choose a thesis statement from the list I have made.
For homework, please choose two thesis statements you are interested in, and post it to this page by clicking the ADD COMMENT link below. This homework is worth one point, but it cannot have any spelling mistakes.
You do not have to download any handout for next lesson.
