IB History Essays: How do you connect your information back to your thesis?

What do you do? Do you write: "This proves the thesis because.." Is it a transition sentence?

I prefer, "this is significant because..."

I don't think what you have is wildly professional, but on a final exam, the IB graders probably won't care. A good history paper is a good history paper, whether or not you 'break the fourth wall' and refer to your thesis as a thesis.

For example if you argue that the alliance system was the main cause of WW1 in your thesis, compared to nationalism and militarism, then in your body paragraphs, you should give examples and analysis to show how it was the main cause, and then a final sentence concluding your analysis and saying "...and due to the interconnectedness of the european countries and their secret treaties, the alliance system was the main cause because it expanded a local war into a global one".
