Summarizing the Thesis Statement

The thesis statement of any piece of writing, often in one sentence, will

  • Clearly communicate what will be discussed.
  • Preview the purpose.
  • Forecast the main organizing pattern.

While some thesis statements are easy to plan, others require careful consideration of

  • scope,
  • purpose,
  • and audience.

The order of the subject matter needs to follow that of the thesis. It needs to indicate the purpose, state the subject matter, and indicate the organizing pattern.

The thesis needs to be checked against the parts of the piece of writing to ensure

  • that the order of both are the same.
  • that the development forecast in the thesis is the same as developed in the piece of writing.
