Freshman: Writing a thesis on Superman and Batman

After spending the last two days reading the article from the book Supergods the time has come to write about it. Today we began class talking about what thesis statements are, what they do and how they work.

Following the directions on the instruction sheet we’ve used the past two days, students were asked to free write for five minutes on whether Batman or Superman better represented today’s America, or whether Batman or Superman more represented humanity/people in general.

At the end of class everyone handed in their annotated copy of the article along with a notecard with their final thesis statement on it. If you missed today’s class make sure you see me so I can guide you through it sometime soon after school or during a free period.
