Only you can write your thesis statement because only you know what you are trying to prove by the end of your paper. Keep in mind that most thesis statements end up being revised during your researching, reading, planning, and writing process.
This is one of the very best places I've seen online to help students write good thesis statements. It shows you sentences that aren't thesis statements and how to turn each one into a real thesis statement.
Just remember: Your thesis statement must include factual information plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and what you intend to prove by the end of your paper. (If your statement is simply factual, then there's nothing to prove!)
PS - Once you get a draft of your thesis statement written, feel free to post it if you'd like feedback from one of us.
