Literary Argument Essay Thesis Statement



alright so in this video we're going to take a look at how to write a thesis statement and so here's what we're going to start i'm not going to show you someone who wrote a draft letter thesis statement and do some revision and show you how to write a really effective thesis statement so you write a thesis statement you have to understand the idea behind it is that it's like one two three sentences that usually shows up towards the beginning of your essay that captures everything your essay is going to be about it fully expose our your argument with just the right amount of detail so in this case here's what I mean by that if we look at the thesis statement portion of your literary argument essay document it says write your thesis statement below in one two three sentences combine the major theme and the three elements of the text that created that major theme into a claim so all you're doing is just making like one or three sentences out of stuff you've already figured out the major theme you've already passed that this person set the theme of call the wild by Jack London is if you put your mind as something you can do it it's all about determination so in this case there's the major theme that's taken care of now we have to combine that with three elements of the text that created that major theme into a claim and up at the very top in the last step you identified three elements of the text you made them bolt this person they identified they said that the major events in the plot here to the theme they said the main characters culture helps create that theme and they said important decisions or actions the main character made helped create that theme so those are the three things these three ideas plus the theme all get combined that's going to be what your essays about your essay is arguing this is a theme in the essay and here's how the book created that theme so if I were to read this person's work they said that the theme of the call the wild by Jack London is if you put your mind to something you can do it it's all about determination so in this case they did it that's perfect major theme now did they have those 3 ohms the text well they start going on buck wasn't the strongest dog he worked on worked everyday trained super hard to gain muscles all the term mission setting the reason this person is immediately getting too much into detail this stuff will all show up later in there sa so what I'm going to do is I'm going to cut this out by hitting control x and they've already started a section up to the top of their essay we're like maybe they wrote too much in a certain section they started a section called the notes for their essay that they're going to keep stuff for later I'm putting that up to the top they can keep that for later maybe it'll borrow these ideas later on when they start to work on their asset but back to the thesis statement what three elements of attacks that created the major theme into a claim let's see what was our first major element major events and the plot was what they said so here's what I would write one way this theme was created was through major events and the plot also comma what else did they say the main characters culture and important decisions or actions a main character made I want to say that those are other two things that led to see also the main characters culture and important decisions and actions the main character made influenced thing so right here this is a thesis statement and the way we know it's Lisa statement they combine the major theme so let's say major theme for our sake let's make that pink let's find it the theme of the call the wild by Jack London's if you put your mind something it's all about you knew it's all about determination let's make that one pink and they said with they combined the major theme of the book sorry if I screwed up yours by not putting the word book in there in the three elements of the text that created a major theme in new claim and three elements that text so we're going to say three elements of texts that created the major theme I'll make that blue and just to show you one of the numerous created was through major events in the plot it's one of those elements of the text they identified also the main characters culture that's another one they identified and important decisions and actions the main character made that's another one they identified all you're doing combining all that together that's what that this essay is going to be organized around that's what it's going to be about
