  1. Yes.

    An essay is a piece of writing in which you express your opinion about a particular topic. If you don't have a true thesis statement, then you're probably just reporting facts or you're writing a diary!

    Here is information about thesis statements:

    A 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.
