The reason a thesis statement like the above is good is because it is up for debate. Not everyone will agree that these services should be covered at no cost. Not everyone will agree that the baby is entitled to these services. On the other hand, simply listing out the effects of a drug addicted baby aren’t very debatable–those will be mostly facts (not great for an argumentative essay).

Write a thesis statement for an argumentative essay- | TED-Ed

Hi, Mike. Thanks for this question. The problem with argumentative essays is that you have to find a topic that can be almost equally supported by two different parties. In other words, there should be enough pro and con arguments. For example, if your thesis statement subjectively states that there were not that many soldiers killed during the WWII, this fact can be easily refuted by the official statistical data. And if you say that the WWII was the most disastrous war of all, it is a debatable topic.

On the other hand, if you want to convince your reader that your position on the issue of homeschooling or capital punishment is valid, you will need to present your point of view in an argumentative thesis statement. With this statement, you not only tell readers what you think about an issue, but you also let them know what you intend to prove in your paper. For this reason there is no need to explain to readers that you will back up your thesis in your essay. Setting out to prove the validity of your point of view as your paper continues marks the difference between stating an opinion and presenting an argument.

100 Thesis Statement Examples to Get You into the Writing Mood

When writing an argumentative essay, a clear and defined thesis statement should explain why the topic is important and why readers should care. The thesis statement should not be so broad that readers cannot identify your position, nor so narrow that your position cannot fully be argued. If an argumentative thesis statement doesn't assert a defined position on an issue, the essay fails to achieve the goal of argumentation -- the reader cannot agree or disagree with a statement that isn't arguable. For example, this thesis statement presents no argument for reader to ponder: “Considering its geological position, Turkey has an important geopolitical role in the EU.” This is a fact, not an argument. A better thesis statement would read: “Considering its geopolitical role in the European Union, the EU clearly cannot survive without Turkey.” Here, the author presents an argument that must now be defended.

Follow the steps below to formulate a thesis statement

Analytical and argumentative essays require different approaches. When you're asked to analyze something, for example a piece of literature, you are being asked to examine and evaluate the work to answer some how or why questions. When you're asked to make an argument, you must investigate a topic, collect, generate and evaluate evidence, then establish a position. In both cases, the thesis statement should always communicate to your reader what to expect from your essay.
