In 25-50 words, describe what a thesis statement does.

Once you have narrowed the topic of your essay, it is important to state your topic clearly in one sentence. Like the topic sentence in the paragraph, the thesis statement introduces what the essay is about and arouses the interest of the reader making a point about the topic you are writing about.is usually a single sentence near the beginning of your paper (most often, at the end of the first paragraph) that presents your argument to the reader. The rest of the paper, the body of the essay, gathers and organizes evidence that will persuade the reader of the logic of your interpretation.
