What is a GOOD thesis statement for a research paper on eating disorders are a worldwide problem. What are 3 things I can explain in my paper?
A thesis statement should tell the reader your belief about something and demonstrate that you have evidence to support that belief.
Your thesis statement could say that you believe "eating disorders is a worldwide problem." But that's not a very strong opinion. If you were to say, "eating disorders is a worldwide problem that is killing us too early," it would be a stronger statement and we'd be more likely to want to read more. Then you would add what type of problem it is (is it psychological, neurological, chemical?), and what can be done about it.
A good thesis statement needs to present your opinion in a convincing manner, encourage the reader to continue reading for your evidence, and provide a guide for the reader to know where your paper is going (how your argument will be presented).
Do not be discouraged if, once you begin your research, you realize that your original thesis statement was too broad a topic. That is, you realize you've bitten off more than you can chew. You can always narrow the focus of your topic to present your argument more convincingly and fit within your assignment guidelines.
