Thesis statement:

The following are some crucial points in writing a clear and analytic thesis for Compare Contrast essays.  

For example: For several hundred years the Mongols ruled over both Russia and China.  After casting off Mongol domination, both areas began a process of political and cultural recovery.  Compare and contrast these processes in Russia and China.


Things to Remember

1) Note the key words in this essay prompt: compare and contrast.  This means you must write a thesis that expresses what China and Russia had in common and where they were different.  In short, your thesis must address the comparison.

 2) Your thesis (and essay) should stay within the parameters of the question or prompt.

 3) Next, your thesis should state an opinion. Be bold.  Do not merely restate the question or one of its assumptions. To argue a point, you must first of all have one.  The following is not an acceptable thesis; it simply restates information given by the prompt:

   Russia and China both gained freedom from Mongol domination.

 4) Your thesis should contain the categories that you will use in the essay as evidence.

  

  a thesis statement can be:  While both Russia and China built strong centralized governments after breaking free from the Mongols, Russia imitated the culture and technology of Europe while China became isolated and built upon its own foundations.
