•            Is the thesis debatable? Exactly who would disagree with it? Why?

•            How could the thesis be made more focused, risky, and clear?

•            What question does it seem to answer? What ill-structured problem does it address?

•            What does the thesis imply about the essay? Reading the thesis, what predictions can you make about the essay?

•            What specific points do you think the essay will raise in support of the thesis?
