A Thesis Statement actually consists of two parts: 1) the subject part which tells the reader what the subject of your paper will be, and 2) the comment part that explains specifically what the writer has to say about the subject.
Some possible ways in which writers might explain the subject to the reader include the following:
Informing: A thesis that informs notifies the reader that he/she will be provided with specific information about the subject.
Example: “Income and wealth gaps between rich and poor have increased substantially in the last decade.”
Interpreting: A thesis that interprets offers the reader an analysis/clarification of the subject.
Example: “George Will’s two recent newspaper columns defending the inequality between rich and poor demonstrate that he is politically conservative.”
Arguing: A thesis that argues expresses a position about a subject to the reader, then provides specific evidence to support and defend that position.
Example: “George Will’s position that economic inequality is healthy for the United States is based on at least two false comparisons.”
(Thesis statements adapted from Maimon, Elaine and Janice H. Peritz. A Writer’s Resources: A Handbook for Writing and Research. Boston: McGraw-Hill, 2002.)
