Product Description
Teach and model thesis-based writing with old "TOM" the Thesis Statement. "TOM" is a mnemonic device to help students remember the three basic parts of a thesis statement. This bundle includes a "TOM" handout, sample written response worksheet, worksheet key, and reflection.

The written response is based on the slave narratives by Olaudah Equiano. It models using a thesis statement to organize an evidence based response to a writing prompt. The worksheet asks students to mark and highlight parts of the writing prompt to show understanding of a thesis statement.

The reflection can be used with any writing assignment in which the teacher expects an extended response to be organized by a thesis statement. I like using it after writing (the next class period) and having students make revisions and attach their draft and final version to the worksheet.

All handouts are provided in Microsoft Publisher as well as PDF format.
