With the Common Core’s emphasis on writing and argumentation, this power point helps explain thesis statements, logical evidence, and outlines. It includes two brief interactive activities. One requires students to evaluate sample thesis statements while the other activity has them consider the quality of evidence. Answers are provided on accompanying slides. This encourages students to interact with the ideas in the power point presentation.
This 13 slide power point is an individual component of a larger product that encompasses an entire unit on research and argumentative essay writing. If interested, here is the link to the unit:
