    Description

    Give students practice with argumentative writing with these bell-ringer handouts that require them to consider evidence for claims, brainstorm counterarguments, and provide possible refutation. Each handout starts with an engaging topic for adolescents, including some of the following:

    • cameras for video classes
    • vaping
    • distracted driving
    • electronics in class
    • the high school dropout age
    • cyber bullying
    • college entrance exam requirements
    • learning to code
    • drug testing student athletes
    • recycling in schools
    • lowering the voting age
    • banning pit bulls
    • requiring preschool
    • paying college football players
    • forgiving student loan debt
    • banning promprosals
    • bringing pets to work
    • regulating drones
    • vaccinating children
    • requiring chores
    • etc.

    There are 80 topics in total (avoiding cliché topics such as abortion and gun control) and a blank template that allows the teacher or students to write their own claims. If you give one topic per day, these could last you for sixteen school weeks!

    Instructions for using the bell-ringers and a sample key for one topic are provided in the resource. Furthermore, several suggestions are provided for using these handouts as other activities.

    If you have already purchased my individual argument bell ringer lessons, please note that these are the same prompts on those resources.
