A good first paragraph of an informative thesis captures the attention of the reader and introduces them to the topic of the thesis paper. The body of the thesis should contain the information discovered during the research phase of the outline. A clearly-written thesis paper will answer most, if not all, of the readers’ questions in the body paragraphs.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for me to undertake extended ethnographic research in Jogjakarta. Doing so will allow me to participate in the life of my informants over the course of a year or more, which will hopefully provide the detail for a rich and informative thesis about gender and the family.”
A special thank you to Linda Li for her informative Thesis
When writing an informative essay, the writer usually forgets that the reader may not know anything about the subject matter. This can lead to the reader misunderstanding parts of the essay. The writer may inadvertently leave out crucial information in the opening paragraph and in the thesis statement that gives the reader a basic understanding of the topic. When you begin writing your essay, keep in mind that you are writing for a general audience. This will help you choose the specific information that you need to include in your paper.
