Product Description
Sometimes my students struggle when trying to craft their own thesis statements. In hopes of remedying this, I have created this PowerPoint presentation. There are three slides meant to reinforce the purpose and depth of thesis statements and supporting details--a thesis is broad and sort of open-ended; a supporting detail is specific and clear, and clearly related to the thesis.

Following that, there is a short "game". There are four statements, and students must decide (either by voting, or by sending a single representative up to a whiteboard) whether a statement is a Thesis or a Supporting Detail. The words (Thesis, Supporting Detail) are links to slides which tell the students whether they were correct. On the Correct/Incorrect slides, just click the arrow button at the bottom right of the slide in order to move to the next statement.

The examples used in this resource reference Tim O'Brien's short stories "Ambush" and "Stockings" and Billy Collins's post-9/11 poem "The Names". I created this as a resource for Workshop 3 of Read 180 Stage C.
