This is a notebook file to be used with your Smartboard/Smart Notebook 16 software. This notebook walks students step by step through how an argument should be framed. Using a modification of the Toulmin methodology of argumentation commonly seen in debate, students learn the elements essential to a successful argument: claim, data, warrant, impact. This lesson includes a link to a commercial to analyze for the elements of a good argument. It also has information about the three types of data/evidence used to back up claims: empirical, logical, and anecdotal. Upon conclusion of the lesson, students are given an assignment to frame an argument (included on the final slide of the notebook).
