    What is a Thesis-driven Research Paper?

    Definition: A thesis-driven research paper is similar to a long essay. The paper will have a strong arguable thesis statement in the introduction. (A thesis is a proposition maintained by argument - American Heritage College). The paragraphs that follow should support or prove your thesis and your paper should conclude a statement of solution and/or suggestions for resolution.  All language should be formal- NO “I”, “you”, “me”, “our”, etc.;  in other words, do not use pronouns-name the person of whom you are speaking. Do not use contractions, slang or abbreviations.
