When an assignment asks you to analyze, to interpret, to compare and contrast, to demonstrate cause and effect, or to take a stand on an issue, it is likely that you are being asked to develop a thesis statement and to support it persuasively.   With a good thesis statement, you are attempting to convince others that you have an interesting, logical point of view on the subject you are studying based on your reasons and evidence.

There is a easy to use thesis generator that may be helpful. It is located at:  http://www.mpcfaculty.net/molly_may/thesis_generator.html
