The first sentence of your introduction should make a general statement about the topic
A thesis is a statement of opinion about the topic.
It should be clearly stated and supported by 2 to 3 main arguments
Teenagers are always exposed to the lives of celebrities on t.v. and on the internet, and may have a tendency to look to them as role models. However, many of today’s famous people are not good role models for young people because they often get caught doing illegal activities, are obsessed with beauty and spend their money on unnecessary things.
Each paragraph begin with a clear topic sentence that restates your opinion and includes your first argument
Next, you should include specific evidence to support your argument.
Next, explain how this evidence proves your argument
Famous people are often times negative role models for today’s youth because they are always being caught in the media doing illegal activities. For example, Justin Bieber has been caught driving drunk on several occasions, and even got into a car accident as a result. If young people admire Bieber, they make think that it’s cool to drink and drive, but it’s not. You can kill yourself or other innocent people.
Introduction with thesis – Famous people = bad role models
Evidence 1 – Usher spends 1 million dollars on a party
Evidence 2 – Kim Kardashian has 5000 pairs of designer shoes
Review your arguments in the final paragraph
Restate your thesis
Stars like Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian and Usher can have a very negative influence on the youth of today. They encourage the use of drugs and other illegal activities and promote unrealistic expectations of beauty and fortune. All in all, young people should be very cautious about mimicking or worshipping today’s top celebrities because it can lead to serious consequences.
