This product is designed to help students craft a clear and organized conclusion for an explanatory essay, such as a research paper or a response to literature.
There is a template including restating the thesis, stating the significance, and call to action. These elements are explained and the students are given sentence starters to guide their thinking. Then, there are two practice activities. Students are given a thesis (one for research, one response to lit), and they write a conclusion for each.
This would work well as a warm-up, homework assignment, or as a quick review. It would also be a great addition in an Interactive Notebook. It meets Common Core Writing Standard 2F, but would work well for any essay. It is ready to print and use in your classroom today! No prep required!
