where is the thesis found in an essay?

QUESTION
where is the thesis found in an essay?
how to use your thesis statement in your essay

ANSWER
The thesis is /usually/ at the end of the introduction paragraph, but it doesn’t have to be. A thesis basically tells you what will be in the rest of the essay and/or how they’re going to approach it. If the last sentence fix this description then you’ve got it. But if it doesn’t it might be in the middle of the first paragraph.

A helpful word to notice, though this doesn’t mean it’s always the thesis, is “Although.” Perhaps something like, “Although John did many things for his country, it was really Jack who made the country what it is today because…” and then it might go on to list reasons.

Speaking of which, lists would be another good thing to look for.
