Before (not yet a thesis statement):
If you do not know the impact of the Industrial revolution, you will not understand anything in this essay. This topic is very good to study because you know about the different views. The Industrial Revolution changed Britain and if it did not happen Britain would not have great technological advances of the 20th century.
After (thesis statement):
The Industrial Revolution changed Britain for the better and led directly to great technological advances of the 20th and 21st centuries.
The rest of what you wrote and called a thesis statement needs to be deleted. Then ... write an introduction in such a way that your thesis statement (notice it's singular, ONE sentence) is the last sentence in the introductory paragraph.
Note: Do not use "I" or "you" or any of these pronouns' forms in your paper -- anywhere!
