Thesis Statements

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Kareem Jabbar Downer-Shojgreen (Consultant), Apr 23, 2013

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.
