Are you writing a paper and confused by your teacher's instruction? Do you want to help your teenager with a school essay but feel lost as to what advice to give? Are you returning to school yourself, after years away, and find that first essay assignment overwhelming? Is there a local or state issue that you need to write a legislature about but are unsure of how to structure your thoughts? Everyone runs into these situations at some point. People need to know how to state their viewpoints, how to support their views and how to present information properly. Considering that the writing process takes most writers years to perfect, it is common for teenagers and professional adults alike to struggle with writing. Few writers are masterful essayists when they start out. Writing and supporting a strong thesis statement takes time and practice. Many writers struggle with constructing a thesis and how to support one with valid information. Thesis statements (theses) are probably the most challenging elements of essay writing. In this book, we attempt to present the crafting of thesis statements and their support in a simple, straightforward manner. Think that thesis statements are only for high school essays? Think again. Citizens who write letters to government representatives use thesis statements to voice their opinions and use data to support them. Consumers reach out to businesses to suggest product improvements and make requests. Business professionals communicate in memos, emails and letters to colleagues and other businesses about products and services, and they use thesis statements to make their points. Like all of the books in the Simple Guide Books series, The Simple Guide to Thesis Statements and Support is written for the person who may struggle with this topic and the person who needs basic explanations with straightforward examples. The book helps students, parents and professionals alike to achieve their goals of improving their writing efficiently. All writers encounter thesis statements and support at some point. Student writers, from elementary school through graduate levels, compose and defend thesis statements in essays. As well, workers in every profession write thesis statements for a variety of purposes.

Perhaps the most daunting graduate school requirement is the development of an action research Master's thesis. This capstone task requires unprecedented amounts of time, energy, and verbiage. Designed to take stress out of the thesis-writing equation, this student-friendly comprehensive handbook glides the reader through a 28-step process from developing a focal topic to defending a scholarly thesis. Framing each chapter as a one-week action assignment, the authors have broken down the process into manageable chunks to enable students writers to achieve an immediate sense of completion at every step. By using this scaffolding approach the the authors encourage the student researcher to focus on one part of the process rather than the total, sometimes overwhelming, final product. With the exception of the "Review of the Literature" section which takes several weeks to complete, all other thesis sections can and should be timed out for seven days. The Authors primary objective was to empower the student researcher to accomplish each of the steps in the process while never loosing site on the product that will help the children in their classrooms. Whether developing an Abstract or writing in-text citations, student researchers are guided throughout he nuances of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Associations, 6th Edition.
