This resource is comprised of ten prompts for argumentative writing. In this set, the prompts are written in the same format as Question 3 of the AP English Language & Composition Exam. Each page includes a suggested time, instructions, and a short passage. Included as well is lined paper identical to that found in the booklet in which students will write on exam day.

Suggestions for Use

✿Use a prompt as part of an assessment of skills at the end of a unit. For more information on teaching argumentation and persuasion, see Argumentation & Persuasion: A Complete Unit.

✿While reviewing for the AP English Language & Composition exam, use one prompt a day as a bell ringer at the beginning of class.

✿Post all ten prompts and do a gallery walk to write thesis statements, underline key words, or simply decide if they agree or disagree with each passage.

✿Put students in small groups of two to four, with each group addressing a different prompt. Each group plans and writes an essay together and then shares it with the class in some form.

✿Do a “cold write” by randomly choosing one of the prompts, projecting it, and allowing students to hear the teacher think aloud while addressing the prompt.

✿Bring closure to a lesson by having students read one prompt and write a thesis as a ticket out the door.

Topics

✿Social media restriction of user speech

✿An analogy of arguments to fire-arms

✿A school district’s “no-zero” policy

✿The FCC’s position on cell jammer technology

✿The importance of knowing our limitations

✿Raising the dropout age to 18

✿Prisoner work pay

✿Public display of affection

✿The increased use of technology in schools
