which of the following is not one of the steps to developing a working thesis statement?
Some Caveats and Some Examples
Once you have a working thesis, write it down. There is nothing as frustrating as hitting on a great idea for a thesis, then forgetting it when you lose concentration. And by writing down your thesis you will be forced to think of it clearly, logically, and concisely. You probably will not be able to write out a final-draft version of your thesis the first time you try, but you’ll get yourself on the right track by writing down what you have.
The correct answer is ‘w rite an essay.’
In the given choice above, all these statements are correct: Do a preliminary reading, draft a statement, and change or refine the statement. Writing an essay is not part of developing a working thesis statement.

For every essay you write, you must focus on a central idea. This idea stems from a topic you have chosen or been assigned or from a question your teacher has asked.

You have to form a specific opinion, and then articulate that into a controlling idea —the main idea upon which you build your thesis.
