    You can think of a thesis as nothing more than a concluding sentence of your first paragraph. Here is a complete structure for an academic style paragraph:1. Arguable topic sentence (you must be able to disagree with it)2. Link to an example that develops your topic sentence3. Commentary explaining how the example develops the idea in the topic sentence4. Concluding sentence stating the larger significance of what you argue in the paragraphYour opening paragraph has this same structure–the only difference from the rest of the essay is that you deal with your subject there in the most general way. Your example in that paragraph is simply a short summary of the entire work (written in a way that develops the idea in the topic sentence).Thus, you begin your essay very simply:”In _To Kill a Mockingbird_, Harper Lee shows us….” Fill in the end with your own idea.Once you get to the concluding sentence, you talk about the LARGER SIGNIFICANCE of what Harper Lee is showing us in the novel. That may be some statement about what you think she hoped to accomplish in engaging the class conflicts. Again, it should be arguable (i.e. you should be able to disagree).Hope that helps.
