Product Description
Let me show your students a pattern to organize an Argument Essay! I use an easy to remember mnemonic for each kind of paragraph in the essay and students will record the information presented on an included notes sheet.

Please note that this is targeted for students who are NOT required to include an opposing claim or counterclaim in their essays.

The notes that are included are called Pixanotes® and are available without the video by clicking {here}.

Pixanotes® are a synergy of traditional notes and interactive notebooks - plus, they are fully differentiated! Included in this file are four formats:

★ Pixanotes® with Pre-printed Pictures and pre-printed content (highest level of structure) Serves as a reference where students may be directed to highlight key terms by the teacher. GREAT for ABSENT students!

★ Pixanotes® with no pictures and pre-printed content (moderate level of structure) Students match the pictures with the correct content.

★ Pixanotes® with pre-printed pictures and blanks (moderate level of structure) Students fill in the blanks but have the clue of the visual already present. SUPER if you are SHORT on TIME!

★ Pixanotes® with no pictures and blanks (lowest level of structure) Students fill in the blanks and match up picture flaps with the correct information.

There is even space for you to include examples of your choice based on the texts your class is reading!

The supporting documents also include a dominoes game that can be used to practice with the information from the notes! PLUS there are also organizers with sentence starters as well as planning sheets.

If your students are just getting started and still need to learn the basic vocabulary associated with argument writing, then please take a look at my Argument Essay Pixanotes® that cover all the basic terms like claim, opposing claim, counter-argument (counterclaim), evidence, reasoning, relevant evidence, irrelevant evidence, audience, purpose, logos, ethos and pathos.

Any way you go, you’ll find that students will experience more success with Pixanotes® because there are more cues for them to use to remember the content!
