What is the first step in writing a thesis

Since baseball’s inception a hundred years ago, a professional women’s league has only recently existed. The idea for the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) was presented to the NBA Board of Governors on April 24, 1996. The NBA Board of Governors approved the idea, and the WNBA was scheduled to start in June 1997. The League belongs to the teams of the National Basketball Association. They finally decided to play the WNBA season in the summer, when the sports schedule was less busy.

Less than fifteen months after the first blow, the league had a lot to decide beforehand. They had to find a station, or stations, to broadcast the events. One of the reasons they decided to do the season in the summer was so they could show the games live and on primetime television. The league announced its broadcast partnerships with NBC, ESPN and Lifetime, even before a player was signed. The inaugural season drew over fifty million viewers across all three networks. But during the second and third seasons, almost a million viewers watched the WNBA every week.

But while professors often tell you what to put in your thesis statement, they don’t always tell you how to write a thesis statement. The four steps below will show you how to write thesis statements quickly and effectively.

Score of your thesis

Score A good score makes reading easier. The easiest way to know where to score is to read what you have written.

Every time you pause, you must add a punctuation symbol. There are four main stop symbols, arranged below in ascending order of “stop levels”:

  1. Comma. Use the comma to indicate a brief pause or to separate items in a list. A pair of commas can complete the beginning and end of a clause or sentence. Sometimes this is also done with a pair of “em dashes” that are printed like this:
  2. Semicolon. The semicolon indicates a pause after the comma. It separates parts of a sentence that are “further apart” in position or meaning, but are nonetheless related. If the comments were “closer together”, a comma would be used. It is also used to separate two clauses that could stand on their own but are too related to have a colon or period between them.


It is not enough to simply ask for specific or original research; the question must add value. In other words, answering research questions correctly should add value to the research field or industry.

Once you’ve found a good research topic, the next step is to persuade your university to let you research it. No matter how good you think your topic is, it must first be approved before you can proceed with your research. A research proposal can be used as a tool to achieve this.
