Thesis Builder

Thesis Builder is a great find for those of us trying to help learners with writing essays. From the tools available (see picture left) learners get very structured guidance on creating a thesis for a persuasive essay, choosing a topic and planning a cause and effect essay. All these guides might be available elsewhere but I've never seen it done so well or as interactively as this site.

Another highlight is the Tubeprompter tool which allows you to embed a video and then provides thinking prompts to consider as (or after) you watch.

Take 5 minutes to click around the site; I guarantee it'll be time well-spent.
