PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If teaching argumentative writing is part of your curriculum, this is the product for you! This month-long workshop is broken down into small, manageable steps (detailed lesson plans included!) which will keep your students motivated and engaged.

Students will begin by analyzing argumentative paragraphs and then trying their hand at writing some paragraphs of their own. Next, they see how a paragraph can be stretched into an essay by adding factual and anecdotal support found through research. Finally, they can pick a topic, do some research, and write an argumentative essay on their own.

Includes:

• 4 weeks+ of detailed, step-by-step lesson plans for each day of instruction
• Anchor Charts (available in color and grayscale)
→ What is Argument Writing?
→ Elements of an Argument
→ Transition Words for Argument Writing
• Sample argumentative paragraphs for analysis
• Paragraph Puzzles (to teach paragraph organization)
• a set of 20 Argument Prompt task cards (highly engaging prompts for middle school-high school students, such as, “Should students be paid for good grades?” and “Should schools be able to punish you for your posts on social media?”)
• an Argument Map (for organizing your essay)
• a Peer Conferencing checklist
• Scoring Rubric
• Common Core alignment checklist

And more!!
