Examples of thesis statements written by 11th grade students after using these materials:
"Though Cuban Anoles are a cheaper lizard than the crested gecko, crested geckos make better pets than Cuban Anoles because crested geckos are docile, easy to care for, have a great variety in colors and patterns, and they are a cheap and affordable lizard."

"Although animal testing enabled the development of many life-saving treatments for both humans and animals, it should still be illegal because it is cruel and inhumane, animal tests do not reliably predict results in humans, and there are alternative methods."

"Although carrying a fetus may be unwanted, abortion may not be a suitable choice because it can result in medical complications later on in life, adoption is a viable alternative to abortion, and a fetus is the start to a life-form, and humans deserve the right to life."
