Do you want an easy way to incorporate argument/opinion writing into your reading block? This pack uses stimulating mentor texts to prompt opinionated thinking. Your students will use the mentor texts to form their own opinion as well as participate in the argument protocol process. This will teach them to use evidence in the text to caucus and form rebuttals. This pack has a graphic organizer and rubric that will help them turn their arguments into organized pieces of opinion writing.
*Keep in mind you will have to get the mentor texts from the library or purchase on your own.
Included in this pack:
-Notes and suggestions for how to teach argument protocol
-Simple steps for following the argument protocol
-Rubric for argument writing
-Graphic organizer for argument writing
