An essay’s thesis statement is very much like a paragraph’s topic sentence. As with the topic sentence, the thesis statement identifies the topic, along with the writer’s attitude, opinion, or point about the topic.


The thesis statement introduces the essay’s topic and the point about the topic. It should be a complete thought that provides direction for the essay, while previewing the essay’s main points. This statement is generally the last sentence of the introduction, preparing the reader for what is to come in the essay’s body.
