WRTG – State Your Thesis or Proposition

Explorar web a fondo

In argument, the thesis is called a proposition. Your proposition should (1) define your argument’s scope by stating its situation or context, and (2) make clear what assertion you are going to debate. Although you may be presenting both sides of the argument to let your readers decide, you may “hook” your readers by stating your argument as a question. Because many questions lack a point of view, however, be sure a question you use as a hook leads to a proposition, and that your proposition makes a claim that is open to debate. Your proposition should state something that your readers feel uncertain about and about which you find arguments for both sides of the issue.
