Persuasive Thesis Statement by Ben Offerman on Prezi

What are the parts of a persuasive thesis statement? Just like an ordinary thesis sentence, there should be at least three parts. The first one is the limited subject. This is the core subject that the writer wants to convey to the readers. It is the primary topic, which will include the opinion for a more diverse discussion. Usually, the limited subject will be anything about a person, place, object or event. The next part of the thesis statement is the opinion. Take note that it is not the same opinion as what a person might think of in an idea. It is just an assertion that could provoke the readers to take sides on a given thought. The more assertive the sentence is, the more thought provoking it will become. Make sure to test what type of opinion you would like to deliver based on a given topic. Lastly, the blueprint of the idea should be included in the thesis statement. A persuasive thesis statement can only achieve its goal if you will present how you are going to partition the discussion. The blueprint will serve as the guide in the discussion of the entire research paper.
