Product Description
Give students practice writing arguments with these bell ringer handouts that require them to consider evidence for claims, brainstorm counterarguments, and provide possible refutation. This is a second volume with new topics!

Each handout starts with an engaging topic for adolescents including some of the following: allowing music in class, learning to code, drug testing student athletes, recycling in schools, lowering the voting age, banning pit bulls, requiring preschool, etc. There are 30 topics in total and a blank template which allows the teacher or students to write their own claims. If you give one topic per day, these could last you for six school weeks!

Instructions for using the bell ringers and a sample key for one topic are provided in the resource. Furthermore, several suggestions are provided for using these handouts as other activities.
