Do NOT simply restate the question. a good thesis formula is...
X. However A, B, C. Therefore, Y.
X=the strongest point against your argument.
A, B, C = strongest points for your argument.
Y= your stand on the prompt.
example: "Watkins has a strong program this year, however Heights has several returning upperclassmen, Coach Waters has included a new workout program, and the rising JV players had a great record last year. Because of the strength and depth of the Licking Heights team, combined with skilled leadership, they will be the best in their conference this year."
