Thanks for writing to Athena. You may want to come into one of the LTCs (we have 5 locations) to work face to face with a tutor. Bring your textbook and the assignment, and the tutor can show you how to develop a thesis statement, which forms the basis of your paper. You can find our locations, as well as handouts--for example, “Organizing Essays,” on how to use a thesis statement to structure a paper—at our website, success.students.gsu.edu/ltc. Thanks!
