PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students often have difficult turning an essay topic into a clear topic sentence or thesis statement. This worksheet allows them to practice both expository and persuasive topics. The strategy I teach them to cross off or "drop" questioning words like "Explain" or "Discuss" and then try to form a clear statement by adding their own ideas. I.e. "Explain 3 benefits of knowing how to type" would become "Knowing how to type is an essential skill; it makes one more employable, more efficient at completing school work and communicating with others on social media." This would be a good exercise before an essay exam.
