Thesis Writing Activity


We all know that the thesis statement is the most important part of the essay. This is also the part of the essay with which students have the most difficulty.

When you are able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a work, you are able to write better yourself.

Topic: Is knowledge good or destructive? The subject is interesting, and can be used along with many different types of literature, or on its own.

In this bundle, I’ve included an interactive PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:

❒ The definition of a thesis statement

❒ How to write a thesis statement (and the steps to take leading up to the thesis)

❒ 5 examples of thesis statements, where students must identify both the weaknesses and the strengths

❒ 10 slides explaining the strengths in the examples and the weaknesses in the examples

❒ 1 example of a well-written thesis statement, and an explanation about why it’s good.

To accompany the PowerPoint presentation, I’ve included a student activity sheet with a list of all of the examples written in the PPT. (PDF format)

Also included is a lesson plan with details regarding the PowerPoint and activity sheet.

As a bonus, I’ve also included 2 posters listing the 7 essential steps to writing a great thesis. I’ve included an image format and a PDF format for easy printing.

❒ the first poster measures 70 cm (27.6 inches)

❒ the second poster, which students can actually read from far away, measures 97 cm (38.2 inches)
