This packet includes three pages:
A hands-on thesis statement remediation sort
A key for the remediation sort
A three-point thesis statement graphic organizer
I use this to re-teach thesis writing and help students rework thesis statements.
In order to see the most growth in this, I would recommend that you have students submit thesis statements (I do this digitally in Google classroom, but any format works) before they begin any further writing. Grade these quickly and create a list of students that scored below an 80%. While students are working on something independently, such as word maps for vocabulary or independent reading, pull the listed students into groups of three to work on the hands-on thesis remediation and then rewrite their original thesis with the help of the graphic organizer. Some students will need additional one-on-one guidance during this step, but most have been very successful in recognizing their mistakes.
This is a great way to do RTI and is very easy to document.
NOTE: You will need scissors and glue for the remediation.
