The front page of this handout has a definition of the thesis and examples with non-examples. The second page provides step-by-step instructions on how to write a thesis statement in two different ways: if you start with a topic and if you start with an opinion.
I usually make copies of this handout on a cardstock paper and laminate it. Students keep it in their binders and use it as a reference when they write expository paper.
