All effective essays are organized around a central claim or thesis statement that must be supported by reasoning, factual evidence, examples, testimony, and related research. Your "working" thesis is a draft that will need to be refined and tweaked as you revise the paper. As you conduct more research and formulate ideas, keep an open mind; do not hesitate to revise your argument, or thesis, as you deem necessary. Remember that a thesis statement is typically a single, complex sentence that captures your claim and essential qualifiers or reasons. It essentially answers your research question.
