Discussion for Thesis Statements
Nicole Cinader (Teacher (K-12))
This is a good outline of your project, but you may want to be more specific with your resources. Give the name of the video and maybe a link to where we can buy it (amazon), since it's a main step in your lesson.

This resource is easy to follow and use. The problem or need is stated very clearly, and sets up the document effectively for the real world experience. Here the students see the purpose of solving the problem. The instructional objectives are clear and direct. This lesson is very streamed lined and concise. I find the use of a Google document and video during this lesson exciting, since it gives the students the opportunity to collaborate with their peers and others.
I would like to see the 7th graders provide feedback to each other as they talk about the thesis statement they are thinking of. Also, it would be nice to see the stages of writing the thesis and a way to monitor their progress.
