I always thought the thesis of the essay belongs towards the end of the introduction paragraph but the other day my teacher said it's suppose to be it's own paragraph. Can anybody clear this up for me.

I'd put it wherever your teacher tells you to, but in the usual short academic essay, it is part of the introduction, which may run for a paragraph or two. The thesis can be in its own paragraph, but there is no requirement for that layout. Much depends of course on the length and complexity of the essay-- in a long work, there may be several introductory paragraphs of background on the topic before the writer's thesis is presented.
yea its true, the thesis of the essay should be in the last sentence of the introdunction paragraph....but my friend's teacher told to put a thesis in each paragraph in one essay..can it happen

The thesis for a body paragraph is called the topic sentence. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states what that particular paragraph will be about.

cobra foldI have have a question. Does an introduction belong at the end of your essay?
Welcome to English Forums, cobra fold, and thank you for registering. You must be careful typing when you post here; you have made many mistakes above (corrected in red). The answer to your question is 'no'. The introduction begins an essay and the conclusion ends it.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
No, you need a conclusion at the end. It's normally a single paragraph.

Hey, thesis statement should be placed at the end of introductory paragraph. Like stated in a guide, "this part (introduction) should be logical and end with the thesis in the end. You should keep your topic on the ground and make the thesis and the starting part as a mini conclusion. It will help your reader to understand what is your main course and object of discussion." Also remember if you write an argumentative or persuasive piece, your thesis statement should be debatable. If your thesis is something that is generally accepted by people, there is no need to make it debatable.

Good example of debatable thesis would be:

At least 25 percent of the federal budget should be spent on limiting pollution.

Great example of non-debatable thesis would be:

Pollution is bad for the environment.

Good luck!

The thesis statement could be written as one paragraph but it could be also written at the starting of the introduction.
