Study/college tip: Think of your thesis statement as a road map for your paper. The remainder of your paper will be focused on addressing your thesis statement. Once you’ve gathered enough facts, write out your thesis statement followed by the most important fact you discovered during your research and reflect upon your results. Share your research with a family member or friend. Did they easily understand what you were trying to say? Follow the map.
Beliefs: Diversity among students enriches the environment and should be valued by everyone.
