What’s The Plan?
So, what we have created for you is an argument text set research unit on homework. This is a medium level text set for perfect for middle school grade level readers and writers.
We use these text sets to help speed up the process of argument research and essay writing. Instead of our students spending so much time sifting and evaluating articles, they can focus on gathering evidence from three high quality articles. The students can easily find one more article to add to their research. It is the best of both worlds. We know, we’re excited about it, too!
Tell Me More:
Well, we have curated a set of texts on one particular topic. We’ve included article links with MLA citation for three articles:
Article #1 - Background research
Article #2 - Pro research
Article #3 - Con Research
We also made graphic organizers for each article to create a nifty little research packet with a thesis statement for each position. We also made an extra blank graphic organizer for students to find one more article that supports the position that they choose after taking research notes on the first three articles. Lastly, this pack includes an essay outline graphic organizer to help students write their argument essay.
