A thesis statement is usually one sentence that tells the main point of your piece of writing-research paper, essay, etc.

The thesis statement is then "proven" throughout the paper with supporting evidence.

When learning to write thesis statements, you may be taught to write a three-pronged thesis statement. This is a sentence that includes three reasons to support the thesis.

Example of Three-Pronged Thesis Statements:

1. We should wear school uniforms because they would help reduce discipline, be cheaper than other clothing, and help create school pride.

2. Zoos should be banned because animals need to remain in the wild, zoos cannot provide natural experiences for animals, and animals in zoos get sick and die.

Examples of Thesis Statement:

Thesis Examples
Striped rocket frog Facts
Elizabeth Blackwell Facts
Argument Examples
Hypothesis Examples

Wetland Biome Facts
Adverb Clauses Examples
To Kill a Mockingbird Chapters 8-11 Summary
