  1. 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!)

    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.

  2. There are many different theories about the sandy hook shooting, some people believe it was a hoax act, and a false flag operation staged by the government, and others believe that it was an attack by politicians to push through new gun control legislation, otherwise persecute gun owners and survivalist. That's what i wrote, is it good?

  3. 1. It's too long. (And it's filled with run-ons.)

    2. There is none of YOUR opinion about all this.

    What do YOU THINK about these different theories?

  4. I don't think so. It is too wordy and doesn't state your opinion.

    Please study the website that Writeacher posted.

  5. So like do i just state one theory and add my opinion to it?
