During my 18-year long career as a language arts and social studies teacher, I focused on a couple of different writing lessons.
One of those was how to construct and support a thesis statement.
Regardless if my students were in middle school or college level, many of them found the concept of a thesis statement overwhelming.
To help my students understand, write and support thesis statements, I created dozens of resources–videos, handouts, info-graphics and examples. In the book The Simple Guide to Thesis Statements and Support, I compiled these resources into a single book. This way, a novice writer could learn about this challenging writing element efficiently.
When writing this book, I wanted to appeal to a variety of learning styles. I included infographics to assist visual learners, explanatory videos to help auditory learners and written explanations for learners who want to see how the writing works.
Who would benefit from this book? Students from middle school through undergraduate college will learn how to construct better writing. Parents who want to support their students with their homework assignments can use the book as a manual to assist them through writing tasks. Adults returning to school after years away from the classroom can get a refresher on lessons learned years ago.
My sincerest hope is that this book will support writers with their essays, letters, research and professional writing. The book is available through the Shop link on the website.
