Question and answer
What are the criteria for judging whether a thesis statement is clear and concise?
a thesis statement fulfills five basic criteria: 1. It states the essay's subject - the topic that you are discussing. 2. [ It reflects the essay's purpose - either to give your readers information or to persuade your readers to agree with you. 3. It includes a focus - your assertion that conveys your point of view. 4. It uses specific language - avoids vague
words and generalizations. 5. It may (but doesn't have to) state the major subdivisions of the essay's topic. ]
