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.
All materials are provided in Google Slides as well!
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.
✿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
