The learner-audience for this lesson are adults preparing for the GED, specifically the English/Language Arts assessment. The lesson demonstrates how the successful writing of the “thesis-statement” is essential for writing an effective persuasive essay. The lesson will help prepare learners to write an effective thesis statement which their essay responds to. The lesson shows how a successful thesis statement guides the direction of the rest of the essay and that without an effective thesis statement most essays are difficult to write and to comprehend for the reader. The lesson encourages learners to practice writing thesis statements and to write thesis statements that draw from their own experiences.

Justification Activity
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
5.0 stars

It is not enough when writing or responding to a piece of literature to share an opinion. Writers and speakers need to justify why the opinion is a valid opinion.
In the writings submitted in class, many students have not been providing justifications or reasons that support the statements made. A good way to find justifications is to look back through what was read for specific details to support the point to be made. Finding information from the text to support the points being made strengthens the argument and is what those that write well do. Strive to improve – use justifications in your writing responses!

This unit is centered around an anchor text that may be common among content area teachers in a high school setting. Although this unit may be incorporated into any high-school English class, it is aligned with Common Core standards for 9-10. This unit will primarily focus on informational and argumentative texts, and can be used to incorporate more informational texts (as directed by the Common Core) into English classrooms at the high school level. This unit is best suited to a collaborative model of development in which ELA and content area teachers share an anchor text (The Universal Declaration of Human Rights) and communicate about how to connect diverse skills to common texts and essential questions.
