History (writing)

posted by .

My college instructor is asking me to define and discuss one of the themes the entire class read about for homework. I've chosen to do a paper on Americanization of the Mexican American woman. However I don't understand how I should define and discuss the theme while writing my essay.

A few questions:
1) Should my thesis statement be written in a way so that I define the theme and my body paragraphs will serve to discuss the theme?

I'm not familiar with writing essays within an history class so I don't know how I should write a thesis statement for this kind of setting. If possible, I'd like to hear some examples of thesis/central point ideas.
