The argument essay is one of my favorite writing assignments of the year. With my sixth graders, I always focus on the term "argument" rather than "persuade" and make sure students understand the opposing view and how to respond to it. This product includes the following:
-What is an argument essay?
-How to format an argument essay
-Original sample essay in both color and black and white
(The slides mentioned above can be shown on the smart board as part of a mini lesson)
-Prewriting graphic organizer with sample
-Rubric aligned to Common Core
-Cover page with a byline and space for a title
