Review Thesis and Essay writing with your high school students!
Students have a hard time grasping how to write an effective thesis. This powerpoint is not an introduction, but a review of how to ensure they have a claim/"so what?" to their argument.
It also briefly goes over the expectations of a 5 paragraph essay using 2 textual examples per paragraph.
I made this in response to my students and our unit of study (Night by Elie Wiesel), but feel free to edit it to suit your classroom!
