thesis statement at the end of the first paragraph. (one assertive sentence, clear, concise, non-trivia, underline it):

express a view that is not immediately obvious. (maybe the dramatic aspect of the dispute, maybe how it affects us today)

Since the argument (thesis) is worth 50%, it is very important to have a strong thesis on the topic of the dispute between Newton and Leibniz ( The thesis should not be about the result of the dispute since we all know Newton won hence no need to argue that)
