Product Description
NOTE: It is not necessary for students to read or have read "Of Mice and Men" in order to make use of these slides. A plot summary will suffice for the practice prompt and, as a teacher, you can create your own prompt modeled after the essay prompt in the slide.

This is a presentation that covers Argument Writing (not Persuasive Writing). This is developed for a Regular/Honors English class, specifically with the ENGL III End of Course Writing Assessment (2016) in mind (but is appropriate for 8th grade and later). I developed this presentation after working on the Rangefinding Committee for almost a decade. Note: this presentation does not disclose or provide information about committee decisions nor does it provide "secrets" that could not be discerned from a thorough reading of the Argument Writing rubric.

This presentation is suitable for teaching Argument Writing in general. I also use it with my ENGL 1010 classes, though the prompt there is more appropriate for a college class. You have full editing power, so if you prefer to not use the novel "Of Mice and Men" and/or the article from the Associated Press, you can edit this presentation.

The strength of this presentation is that it provides a sentence-by-sentence breakdown of Argument Writing, with examples at each step.
