Just a couple of suggestions:

  • Do not start your efforts by trying to write a thesis statement.
  • Start by reading as much as you can about the topic. Find lots of information.
  • Keep track of your search either through bookmarking your sites or copying sources to your computer. READ and HIGHLIGHT.
  • Find commonalities in the articles. Do some take a "Yes/No" approach? If so, what arguments do they make? Compose a list of "Yes" ideas and then "No" ideas.
  • Star the reasons YOU find most compelling.
  • If your assignment requires, choose a side--then choose 4-5 supporting arguments from your research (depending on the length of the assignment). 
  • If choosing a side is not part of the assignment, choose two good "yes" reasons and two "no".

NOW you are ready to compose a thesis statement. A thesis statement is one sentence with no "ands". (Then you would have two things to prove!) Keep your thesis simple and clearly written. Example: Cultural diversity in the workplace improves employee morale OR Cultural diversity in the workplace necessitates sensitivity training.
