This is an extremely useful addition to teaching Argumentative Essay Writing. We have generated a rubric that the students can use to ensure they are including all of the necessary components to a successful Argumentative Essay.
This resource helps students self-monitor their essay writing during their writing process and then at the end. You can also have students Pair/Share and use the rubrics to grade the other students writing as another step in the writing process.
The idea is the students are more involved in the writing process if they know what is expected of them for their final product, a 5 paragraph Argumentative Essay focused on one given topic.
