Product Description
Lesson bundle: Thesis statement workshop to help students formulate strong claims & peer review workshop for completed essay drafts.

Thesis statement workshop: Students learn about the qualities of good thesis statements, practice critiquing thesis statements, write their own, then engage in a peer review activity and a revision activity. At the end of the day, everyone has a stronger draft that they can submit to the teacher for critique.

1. Accurately evaluate thesis statements
2. Compose your own quality thesis statement
3. Improve your thesis statement by engaging in a peer review & revision activity

Peer Review & Revision Workshop (when students complete their essays): Students work collaboratively with peers to provide meaningful feedback on a sample essay draft using a provided peer review checklist. They then examine a sample revision and highlight strengths and weaknesses of the revision. This prepares students to then provide effective feedback on their peers' essays.
