The ABC's of Thesis Writing: The Simplest Way to Learn Thesis Writing. It is divided in three sections

A: Introduction To Thesis Writing
Thesis writing is an important part of every academic undertaking. In partial fulfillment of graduation requirements, every student submits an original research paper that presents an intellectual proposition.

It also contains a thorough discussion of the Parts of a Thesis Paper: Title Page, Acknowledgement, Table of Contents, Abstract, Introduction, Literature Review
Methodology, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, References/Bibliography, Appendices

Aside from the parts, included are Six Helpful Tips for Thesis Writing.

B: Thesis Proposal - A Thesis proposal is where you propose your thesis. In order to understand how to propose a thesis, you should be able to remember what the point of a proposal is: It is merely to propose a topic to a committee in order to gain their approval that your thesis is actually feasible. The thesis proposal serves as the foundation of how your dissertation will be evaluated which is why you must be careful about your proposal.

Tips in Writing Your Thesis Proposal: The first credibility to propose your thesis is to remember that the first sentence written in the proposal should be your thesis statement. The next step is to present a description of how to know if the proposition is valid and feasible. The next is to provide conclusion which summarizes your thesis including the truths about it, why it is feasible and how it would contribute and expand current knowledge in the topic.It is important to be clear about the structure of the proposal.

C: Thesis Statement - The thesis statement is a powerful statement that convinces an audience that the topic is interesting and that it provides a logical point of view of the issue you are concerned about. Thesis statements are not merely statements of fact, but they are statements that should make a claim or an argument. It should appear at the end of the first paragraph of the paper. It should follow that as the audience reads the rest of the paper, they will find that the evidences and the logic presented leads back to the thesis statement. Since it is the road map for the paper, a thesis statement serves as the interpretation of a question which means it has to be able to understand and explore the core of an issue.

How to Write a Strong Thesis Statement?
The statement should be specific and should encompass what you will discuss in your dissertation wherein facts and evidences serve as support. Thesis statements may be revised from time to time because as you write, you will realize that your topic has changed. It is okay to refine it as arguments will also be revised.

It is also important that the thesis statement is clear and will allow you to specify how the hypothesis will be answered.
