Notice that I also now have the three major elements of a thesis statement: 1) A : better cooperation, better coordination, and better overall health.
Process: What follows is a method for writing thesis statements that many writers have found useful (we found it in Chapter 3 of The Allyn & Bacon Handbook). Decide what you are writing about: A clear, concise thesis statement does more than outline the subject in question; it makes the reader aware of the writer's stand on the subject in question, connecting a subject with a controlling idea. Think about all the elements your paper will deal with: A thesis generally consists of a subject that contains within itself a number of smaller facts; the topic sentence of each paragraph that makes up the body of the paper should refer (in some clear way) back to the ideas contained within the thesis statement in order to keep the paper from digressing. Think about the purpose and tone of your paper: A thesis statement should contain the main point of the paper and suggest to the reader a direction that the paper will take in exploring, proving, or disproving that main point. State your main point in a sentence or two: A good writer can assert the main idea of a short, coherent essay briefly.
Instead of rambling, be as straightforward as possible. Revise your thesis as you develop your paper: A final version of a thesis statement will only be available after a draft of the paper it is a part of has been completed.
The focus of the paper may change and evolve over the period it is written in; necessarily, the thesis statement should be revised to reflect the alterations in the paper.
Few writers finish a paper writing about the exact topic they begin with.

How will I continue the discussion of something that cannot be disputed?
It can easily be proven that George Will did in fact write about equality in the United States, so I don’t really have a strong position because it is simply a fact.
Let’s suppose now that after asking these questions, I’ve decided I want to narrow my topic into children and sports.
I might next have a thesis like this: Notice that I have beefed up my vocabulary a bit by changing “really good” to “beneficial.” For help with specific vocabulary, check out the Using Precise Language page.
