Students won't struggle writing an argument with my infographics, organizers, outline, and instructions. I've broken down the standards, looking at the precise skills students need to practice and incorporated them into easy-to-understand images and organizers.
-Research data and facts to support claims
-Address the counterclaims and write rebuttals
-Write introduction and conclusion
Includes detailed grading rubrics for grades 6-8 and 9-12, making assessment easy for you. The rubrics do not just cover the writing standards; alignment to the language and reading standards are incorporated into them.
UPDATED SEPT. 2016: MLA 8th Edition Format guidelines are included, with handouts for documenting sources.
Also added an editable online presentation to help students choose a topic. Compatible and shareable through GOOGLE CLASSROOM or another online sharing site, such as Edmodo.
UPDATED MARCH 2014: Includes examples and detailed Common Core Argument Writing STUDENT GUIDE for Grades 6-12. (This added 30+ pages to this bundle!)
I also added a detailed example of a counterclaim and rebuttal paragraph. I made several visual aids showing students the essential things necessary for a good counterclaim rebuttal paragraph. (This bundle is now over 100 pages)
