Scaffolding a “Strong” Thesis Statement and Grammar for the Essay

Below, you will find the two worksheets I used to help students craft strong and original thesis statements and edit their grammar for their essays.  When scaffolding and helping students with these worksheets, students were not writing their actual essays.  They were simply practicing with examples in the context of the 1920s or other things we studied in class.  You will also find an example, introductory paragraph I wrote for a history paper in college.  Again, this was to personalize this assignment and prove to my students I had experience with the type of work they were engaging in.
