Once you have created your three topic sentences, you are ready to create your hypothesis.
A hypothesis is a single sentence answer to the Key Inquiry Question that clearly states what your entire essay is going to argue.
It contains both the argument and the main reasons in support of your argument. Each hypothesis should clearly state the ‘answer’ to the question, followed by a ‘why’.
The Indigenous people of Australia were treated as second-class citizens until the 1960’s (answer) by the denial of basic political rights by State and Federal governments (why).
To create your hypothesis, you need to combine the three Topic Sentences into a single sentence answer.
