Constructing the Thesis

When writing academic papers, the most anxiety-inducing step may be looking at a blank page and trying to come up with a thesis statement.

Yet the key to a successful paper relies heavily on a solid and comprehensive one.

Instructors focus on it; students fret over it.

During this 60 to 90 minute session (time dependent upon attendees' input and questions), you will learn three primary points:

  1. Understanding the importance of a well-constructed thesis

  2. Ways to approach the thesis when writing, and

  3. A template to follow that, if put into practice, assures writers of any level a superior thesis statement.
