    Coutney, Not certain what Tet Offensive is but, I Aced Comp class. Secret, lots of research from library, yes you have to get some books and read!! Take most important parts from books, use net for info also. be sure to include plenty of your thoughts and ideas on the subject. Write an awsome conclusion using words such as Furthermore, I believe ... or,Moreover, I think... Use Keys for Writters!! The Bible for thesis statement papers!! Pay great attention to detail, grammar, absolutely no typos! Set up the paper according to what your instructor wants(this is huge for a good grade!!) Follow the format 100% even if you hate it!!Ex: times new roman 10 pt ft etc, etc, The Keys for Writters you may find at library, or you may have one. Each section, will walk you through the steps to writting an awsome paper!! I actually miss College Comp, party compared to College Chem~~!! Good Luck!! Sandy

    Courtnee,

    For thesis statements:
    http://leo.stcloudstate.edu/acadwrite/thesistatement.html
    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!)

    And here are some search results to help you, but Courtnee is right -- the best research is done at your library. If you have problems finding what you need, ask for help from a research librarian.
