This thesis statement activity uses the concept attainment approach. The materials provide multiple opportunities for students to evaluate the characteristics of strong and weak examples of thesis statements.
Concept attainment is my new absolute favorite teaching strategy! Students love it. The activity is almost like solving a mystery. Students get "yes" examples and "no" examples of a concept and take notes on important characteristics in order to define the concept on their own.
This product includes an editable PowerPoint, a formatted PDF, and a student response sheet.
