Teach your students to write solid argument essays step-by-step with my Argument Writing unit. It is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for grades 6-12. Newly updated to include EDITABLE handouts and rubrics in Google Drive (using Google Slides).
Students won't struggle writing an argument with my graphic 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
-Cite sources using MLA format and style guidelines
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 NOV. 2016: Google Drive handouts and rubrics that are EDITABLE and can be shared using Google Classroom (or another secured site like Edmodo).
UPDATED SEPT. 2016: MLA 8th Edition Format guidelines are included, with handouts for documenting sources.
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)
