This document features 25 questions. Students are asked to determine what makes a thesis statement too wordy or too vague. Then, they must revise the thesis statement.
Use this assignment to help students reduce the amount of vague, redundant, and unnecessary language within introductions. This skill can be applied to other writing tasks as well. I use this to help students hone their skills after studying the organization and expectations of the ACT writing section.
This assignment includes an answer key and aligns with the introductory paragraph lessons available on www.NoRedInk.com
As always, this product comes with access to the original document to allow for personalization.
