Question 5

1 / 1 pts

Is this a good thesis statement?

“The movie Star Wars focuses on Luke Skywalker’s heroic journey, but Han Solo also undertakes a more complicated heroic journey that takes place primarily off-screen or in his own mind.”

Correct!

 

Yes

 

Yes! This is a good thesis statement because it takes an arguable position (many people could disagree with it), and it requires evidence from the movie to defend it. It is also specific enough that a reader can predict the main topics that will be discussed (what a heroic journey is, what Luke’s heroic journey is, how Han’s journey is different).
