LBMD 2001 Intro to Library Resources: Thesis Statement

Help

Research Questions

Take your research question (RQ) and turn it into a working thesis statement (WTS)  Add your hypothesis as part of the statement. 

RQ:

Does global warming affect the polar bear population? 

WTS:

Global warming is responsible for the melting ice caps leaving polar bears with fewer resources needed to survive. 

You will have a strong WTS as long as you worked hard to create a strong research question and have a working knowledge of the issue.
