This mentor text, "The Energy Drink Craze", serves as a great example of the components of an effective argument essay for students. The introduction of the essay states the author's claim and provides reasons for the claim. The following paragraphs are organized around the reasons with various types of evidence. Effective modeling of transitions are included in this mentor text also. The conclusion paragraph highlights the reasons and leaves the reader with an added insight as well as a call to action. This mentor text goes very well with The Elaboration Phrases for Argument Writing handout on Teachers Pay Teachers.
