Product Description
When I started teaching expository writing, I discovered that junior high and high school students didn’t know how to write a thesis statement, elaborate on their reasons, or explain their reasoning. Part of the problem involved organization, but the other part was an elaboration issue. As a remedy, I started using the AQA process—“Answer the Question Asked” in the essay prompt to teach students to write a thesis statement. They had to answer the question, state their position, and present topics they would use as support in the essay. This unit also includes an elaboration method with teacher examples and student samples to help build background. I also put a quick write teaching protocol into the unit that helps students to get their thoughts down on paper. Finally, you'll find teacher and student handouts that guide the teacher and student from the quick write to the rough draft, revision, and editing.
