Every final project should have a main point, the main idea, or the central message. The argument(s) you make in your project should reflect this main idea. The sentence that captures your position on this main idea is what we call a thesis statement.
A thesis statement focuses your ideas into one or two sentences. It should present the topic of your project and also comment on your position concerning the subject. Your thesis statement should tell your viewers what the project is about and help guide your writing and keep your argument focused.
