Product Description

This is a comprehensive argument essay unit I use with my 8th graders. But this could be used for 7th-10th grade classrooms when adapted to fit student needs.

Included in this unit are:

  • Three different prompts my students are allowed to choose from, including some resources they may use as their research.
  • Research gathering activity including graphic organizers
  • Main Claim/Thesis statement instructions and practice
  • Attention-getter/hook identification and practice activity
  • Sample Intro Paragraph identification and annotation activity.
  • Sample Body paragraph identification and annotations instructions with practice activity.
  • Counterargument and rebuttal instructions and activity
  • Step by step outline
  • A rubric for ease of grading
  • Bad sample student essay with annotation instructions and questions for student reflection
  • Good sample student essay with annotation instructions and questions for student reflection
  • Student reflection activity

These are all easily able to be edited by the teacher to fit the topics and needs of the classroom and the needs of the students.

I also have an Informative/Explanatory Essay Unit available on TpT
