Modern History

posted by .

I've got to compose a thesis for my modern history paper on Hitler or Stalin. We are looking at studies of power, in particular the abuse thereof.

I'm normally an A grade student but both thesis' I've proposed were either just a statement or too broad.

I would like to do Stalin. I'm interested in how he annexed the Balkans, his purges of the Kuluk and weakened the economy.

What kinds of thesis can I do that will target all of these?

    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!)

    Read carefully and follow ALL directions.

    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 real thesis statements.
