Some things to consider as you develop your essay's claim/thesis statement:
Blowout! Text example... (ex: " Sal Castro can be seen as an educational muckraker who exposed the underside of public education. Castro provided a voice for his Chicano students through his role as a teacher and educational leader .")
- Claims/Thesis statements must be specific and debatable. Think: If someone read your claim, how could they potentially disagree/debate with you over the topic?
- Writers can think of their claim as a short summary of their entire essay—a summary that accounts for their position and their support for that position. In this way, a claim serves as the essay’s road map, as something that can help guide the reader through the essay.
