Product Description
Thesis Statements Lesson

Thesis statements are an abstract concept that can be difficult for students to learn. I created and used these activities with my High School ESL students. Their English level was intermediate, and they seemed to have a good grasp of identifying and writing thesis statements after this lesson. (Note: These activities assume that students already know about the other parts of an introductory paragraph and ONLY focuses on the THESIS statement)

Lesson Includes: 3 activities, and a summative assessment.
-Activity 1: works with identifying the Topic of
a paragraph
-Activity 2: Works with identifying the thesis
statement through answering a
few questions about the
paragraph
-Activity 3: Works with students reading the
beginning of an introductory
paragraph and then completing
the paragraph with a thesis
statement.
-Summative Assessment: Students are given
a topic and have to write an
introductory paragraph about it

P.S. The formatting looks a little strange in the preview, but it should each be on its own page if bought.
