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.
