AP World History

On comparing Rome and Han China in a practice comparative essay for the AP Exams:
"Rome and Han China had similarities in society, government, and how their empire fell, as well as differences in these same three areas."
Is this a good thesis statement? If not, I'd like some suggestions on how to improve it. Thank you!
A thesis statement needs to give your position or your stance (your opinion) about the topic as well as the topic itself. You have stated facts; now you need to add YOU into the statement.
Remember, in an AP class, you are not writing as a high schooler anymore. You're to be writing at the level of a college student. You need to state your own considered opinions about topics and then back them up with details, details, details.
P.S. Slide down to "World History" on the chart and you will be able to download the Course Description:
