PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In persuasive writing, many students have trouble writing a clear thesis statement on what their essay is truly about. In the lesson Teaching Thesis Statements with Movie Trailers, students get to break down what is actually involved in a thesis statement and what happens when the statement is vague- as teachers we feel that we get misled often!

Movie trailers are a good tool to use in teaching thesis statements because it is relatable to almost every student- they have to admit they would feel pretty misled if they thought they were going to see a romantic comedy and actually walked into a horror movie! In this lesson, the students get a few laughs seeing a movie trailer that shows nothing about what the movie is about, a movie trailer that does well at showing the true plot of the story, and also a movie trailer that has been spoofed! Grab your students attention with making thesis statements relatable!
