I am a believer in clear and concise lessons. This PowerPoint slideshow provides a short overview of an important topic: thesis statements. The student can easily use this tool on their own, or I can use it in class to direct a discussion. In any case, the information is presented in smaller (less overwhelming) chunks.
The exercises provided are clear and simple, and the answers can be discussed in class or via a discussion board. The few animations I included allow students time and space to think about their answer.
You may change any portion of this slideshow as long as you don't sell it or give it away to other users. Please do not share this file (freely or otherwise) or post it online. Thanks!
