Doing research or, even better, selecting a topic in which you have personal experience will set you on the right track..Based on the page/word limit of your paper, limit the topic to something specific but without being too broad or narrow.If you are connecting two ideas in your statement (e.g., “Some argue that A is true, but it is evident that B is a stronger argument”), make sure that you are able to establish a genuine relationship.
Have you come up with any interesting thoughts or developed compelling links between ideas? Consider using any ideas generating during the brainstorming as you develop and shape your thesis statement in particular and paper as a whole.
As you decide upon your thesis statement, keep it clear and specific.
