Thesis Statement and Body Paragraph
Please share your thesis statement and one complete body paragraph from your Informative Essay – Draft, and then respond to the following question:
How does your body paragraph directly support your thesis statement?Did you use rich, relevant examples or statistics?
After you have posted, provide a classmate with feedback.
Discuss your observations regarding how well your classmate’s body paragraph directly supports his or her thesis statement.Offer ideas for improvement where needed, and celebrate one or more strengths in your classmate’s writing.
How to give feedback: A “good” peer review is specific and combines suggestions for improvement and praise for what works well. A “poor” peer review does not give specifics and does not offer insight to help your classmate reflect on or improve his or her writing.
