This writing assignment is based on George Hillocks work: Teaching argument writing, grades 6-12: supporting claims with relevant evidence and clear reasoning.
In this writing assignment, students create an argument of judgement from something that they understand (playing a game). This is the writing assignment for the unit. This assignment builds on my first unit also in my items for sale.
The unit integrates technology to create an argumentative YouTube video but can be modified to write only an essay.
