This website helps you build a solid thesis statement. Use the Opposing Viewpoints in Context database to find a smaller topic within a larger one and your claims. Have questions? Ask a Librarian!

Kibin Thesis Statement Generator (www.kibin.com/thesis-builder/type)

  1. Choose “argumentative essay”
  2. Type in your general topic (ex. genetically modified foods)
  3. Click on “for” or “against” and then on the orange “I’m ready to choose my focus” button
  4. Type in your specific intended audience (ex. Americans)
  5. Add one more claim so that there are at least 3 claims and type in your specific argument points (ex. Genetically modified foods… 1. have been linked to creating diseases like cancer, 2. contaminate non-GM foods, 3. has very little oversight from the FDA.)
  6. Click on orange “Show me my thesis statement” button.

My example thesis: “Americans should be against genetically modified foods, because they have been linked to creating diseases like cancer, contaminate non-GM foods, and has very little oversight from the FDA.”
