      Well, let’s think about what a thesis statement is, and does. Creating the right thesis for your paper can help you focus your research and develop a topic that is interesting for you and your readers.

      Remember the main point you want to make about your topic is often expressed in a thesis statement. So if your topic is about healthcare your thesis statement should reflect what specifically in healthcare your paper is covering. Above all, a thesis is a clear, original, defensible statement of what you want your reader to believe or understand. A good thesis asserts a single main idea that grabs your readers interest.

      In other words a thesis statement unifies the paper. It provides the reasoning that your evidence supports. Remember it this way. Everything in your paper needs to be related to the thesis.

      We have actually created a video here which can help:
