– End the paragraph with an articulated thesis statement sentence.
Your aim is to write the thesis statement (your opinion) so that it is clearly worded, concise, and identifiesthe dilemma of the topic or the aspect of the topic that is controversial. The thesis statement is the focal pointof your essay. A thesis is a proposition put forward and supported by arguments.

The thesis statement is tobe the final sentence of this second paragraph.
D. Analyzing the Issue (Paragraphs 3, 4 and 5)

After stating your argument, defend it in the rest of the paragraph by using critical analyses and examples. Consider arguments such as historical, ethical, legal, social, cultural or political. However, each argument must be clearly distinct, relevant to the original thesis statement.
