PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use these FREE task cards to Analyze an Argument in ANY argumentative text. Provide the text to the students and ask them to read it silently before assigning them work with the task cards. These task cards should be used after students have become familiar with the following terms: claim, reason (justification), evidence, counterclaim, and refutation. Additionally, students should be able to consider the qualifications of the author of the text.

These task cards are a great tool for meeting Common Core Standards and can be used to provide differentiation and formative assessment. There are 8 cards in total, and one page of blank cards is provided so the teacher can create his or her own questions and activities if desired. A response sheet and an example key for the "Speech to the Second Virginia Convention" by Patrick Henry has been included.

Be sure to print these in landscape orientation. It may be necessary to adjust copying or printing to meet specific needs.
