How do I write expository thesis statement?
Purdue OWL gives a very nice explanation of what an expository essay is:
“The expository essay is a genre of essay that requires the student to investigate an idea, evaluate evidence, expound on the idea, and set forth an argument concerning that idea in a clear and concise manner. This can be accomplished through comparison and contrast, definition, example, the analysis of cause and effect, etc.”
Your thesis statement will depend on how you choose to accomplish your goal.
If you choose to accomplish it through comparison and contrast, for example, the thesis statement can look like this
“Although the promotion of responsible parenthood is the most popular means of tackling the growing number of global population, investing into the healthcare in the developing countries is much more effective long term” (you may find evidence to support this thesis in this literature review)
If you plan to investigate some issue through its effects, the thesis has to demonstrate it accordingly:
Let’s take the same issue of overpopulation: “Considering the threat to the environment overpopulation causes, it is certainly a concerning issue, which should be addressed by the global community and individual states in particular”
