Product Description
This graphic organizer helps students create strong claims based on evidence from the text - in this case, Shakespeare's Sonnets 27 and 57. The activity is scaffolded and can be used in several ways. The first organizer provides the evidence from the Sonnet 27 and guides students through the process of creating claims and an overarching thesis based on quotations from the sonnet. The second organizer encourages students to find their own evidence from Sonnet 57 and then create strong claims and an original thesis based on the evidence. The organizers can be used subsequently for plenty of practice, or the first organizer can be used for struggling students while the second organizer can be used as a challenge for students who "get it."

The template is easily adaptable for almost any text and can be used repeatedly (with minor changes) as students write analyses about a variety of texts throughout the year.

In my 9th grade classroom, I use this activity with the aforementioned Sonnets as an introduction to reading and analyzing Romeo and Juliet.
