Use this scaffolded worksheet to get your students writing those pesky thesis statements.
Three levels of complexity gradually release the objective.
I've also provided two examples of simple thesis statements (one at a slightly higher level). Both examples were created BY STUDENTS on the very first day of the lesson. Neither student even knew what a thesis statement was before that day.
As with all my worksheets, this is fully editable and customizable to fit your students needs.
My students are ELLs and SPED, so you may need to increase difficulty if you are working at a middle school or higher level.
