Product Description
When beginning to write introduction paragraphs for informational prompted essays, students need to identify the topic and the point that the author is trying to make in the text.

This activity is used just for that! The students will identify what they are expected to do as the reader of the prompt and text that would accompany it. From there, they identify with their role as a writer and determine what they must do to convey their ideas by writing a controlling idea statement (thesis statement, topic & point statement, focus statement, main idea of the whole, claim, etc).

Please note that the essays that they are expected to read as a reader are not included. These are just sample prompts to flip / rewrite into thesis statements / controlling ideas / main idea and point statements. These prompts provide practice for identifying the focus for their informative writings.

Benchmark:
