Think about what your thesis statement will be

The thesis statement is the main point of your paper. The type of thesis statement you'll be making depends a lot on what type of paper you're writing-- a report, an issue analysis, an advocacy paper or another type. As you gather specific information and refine your focus, intentionally look for a main point to your findings. Sometimes, a thesis emerges very obviously from the material, and other times you may struggle to bring together the parts into a sensible whole. The tricky part is knowing when to stop gathering information--when do you have enough, and of the right kind? Seeking a main point as you research will help you know when you're done.
