In years past, I’ve used this fantastic graphic organizer to help teach the concept of thesis statements to students ranging from seventh grade to eleventh grade. It really helps them break down their thesis into manageable parts before they embark upon the writing of the whole essay.
Along with this great teacher tool, I use this video to show how a thesis statement is used to prove a point.
You’re welcome to use this graphic organizer in your classroom, but please show your appreciation by sharing, liking, and/or pinning it with a link back to this website. Thanks! (Those links, by the way, will take you to my various social media pages where you can find this post, if it’s a recent one.)
Also, if the school where you teach offers a Secret Santa program, you might want to check out my Secret Santa blog at that link. It offers free poems, craft patterns, and gift ideas for Secret Santas/Secret Pals. The holidays creep up on us awfully quickly!
