Steps to Creating a Thesis Statement
1. Name your topic:
2. Come up with a debatable question:
–EXAMPLE: Is there any benefit to cloning technology?
3. Revise the question into a claim statement based on your research.
–EXAMPLE: There is benefit to using cloning technology.
4. Add reasoning to your claim:
–EXAMPLE: We can use cloning technology to avoid genetic disease and radically change organ transplantation for the better.
5. Consider opposing evidence:
