Great unit. I just wish the examples were more like an argumentative essay instead of a persuasive essay. With CC, our district only wants us to teach arguments.

I have been using pieces of this packet throughout the quarter as I have taught my sophomores how to construct argumentative and persuasive essays. The steps that are provided are very helpful, and it was great not to have to create so many graphic organizers. Thanks!

Unfortunately, this was not what was needed for the argumentative essays we are writing in 7th grade for the Common Core. It was set up totally different. The work was very well done, it just did not meet my needs in the classroom.
On  October 30, 2012Secondary Solutions answered:
Hi Kimberly,
I would be very interested in hearing what exactly you were looking for. Perhaps I can work on creating something that fits your needs. Please feel free to email me at kbowers@4secondarysolutions.com. Thanks!

On  October 23, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Does this package include actual lesson plans?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 23, 2012Secondary Solutions answered:
Hi, this product does not include actual lesson plans that you might put together for a college course or an administrator, with goals and objectives, assessment results, etc. However, it includes ready-to-use activities and worksheets for teaching. I guess you could say that these are the methods and applications you would use when putting together a full lesson plan. I hope that helps!
