When I first starting teaching my students about Argument Writing, they didn't understand some of the basic terms, so I created this presentation to help them learn the terms and ideas. It aligns with the MAISA Argument Writing unit. I included several Word Sifts for my students to hypothesize about different concepts.
I included the following terms: opinion, claim, debatable claim, facts, evidence, personal experience, logical reasons, confirmed facts, statistics, research by experts, persuasion, and credible sources. It even comes with a study guide for the students that can also be used as a quiz.
