    A thesis statement is like a road map for your paper, using your ideas and thoughts about the topic. It tells the reader what to expect from the rest of the paper. It tells the reader how you will address the subject, and directly answers any questions asked of you. The thesis statement interprets the question or the subject, offers a possible way of understanding it. A thesis statement often offers a point of view that others might disagree with. It is usually a single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph, and it presents your argument. The rest of the paper, the body of your essay, gathers and organizes evidence that will persuade the reader of the logic and sense and believability of your interpretation. So keep all of those thoughts in mind in constructing your thesis statement. Do a search for "how to write a thesis statement" and you will find several very helpful sites.
