Class Description

Four Square Thesis Statements walk students through an often intimidating process in a clear and logical manner. I developed it while teaching English 101 at College of the Canyons for those students who were taking this UC transferable class the 2nd or 3rd time because developing a thesis was confusing for them. I also used it for AP students, especially the AP Language and Composition test. The passing rate rose to 90% with the students who employed this method. I teach the process over 4 weeks and I write the thesis statements with the students. They then produce an outstanding essay easily and with confidence. This process helps with College Entrance Essays as well. Appropriate for all ages 7-adult
