This packet walks students through the process of understanding what a thesis statement is and how to write one. This is a BASIC mini-lesson for thesis statements. It is NOT intended for AP classes or creative writing, but is for teachers whose students need help getting started with thesis statements. I have used this with my own students grades 7-10 with success.

This is a 9-page .pdf file and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view.
