Description

Give students practice with argumentative writing with these bell-ringer handouts that require them to consider evidence for claims, brainstorm counterarguments, and provide possible refutation. Each handout starts with an engaging topic for adolescents, including some of the following: cameras for video classes, vaping, distracted driving, electronics in class, the high school dropout age, employment restrictions for teens, cyberbullying, college entrance exam requirements, public displays of affection, tanning bed age restrictions, and ADHD medication prescriptions.

This resource can be used for distance learning in Google Classroom with Easel by TpT.

There are 40 topics in total (avoiding cliché topics such as abortion and gun control) and a blank template that allows the teacher or students to write their own claims. If you give one topic per day, these could last you for eight 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. These activities are excellent for standardized assessment practice.
