I have taught Thesis Statements (TCAP SPI 7.2.3 and 7.3.3 till I am blue in the face this year. Finally, I made this review lesson up on the fly today and “ding, ding, ding” they finally got it! I also had fun showing them PPT drawing skills and they FINALLY mastered the standard (well most everyone). Hope it works for you, too!
This is the PowerPoint file. There is a free handout with 6 practice problems that are rigorous with high stakes multiple choice answers.
