Product Description
This 2-page handout and thesis writing worksheet walks students through the basic components of a strong thesis statement and how to write one. It provides examples of essay prompts and strong thesis statements for them. It also gives students a list of tips for what NOT to do in their thesis statements (based on the most common errors I find amongst my own students).

At the end of the handout, there are 6 essay prompts for students to write practice thesis statements for. One of my classes was having trouble understanding thesis statements, and this handout/ practice worksheet really helped clarify things for them. I hope you find this as useful as I have!

See my Thesis Statement PowerPoint for additional help in teaching this important topic!
