Do your students need more at-bats when reading argumentative and persuasive text? Using these practice pages, you can give them that extra look at how to decipher the different aspects of an argument. Topics covered include identifying the overall argument, differentiating claims, tracing evidence, and evaluating the effectiveness of the text. Each text is also paired with several multiple choice questions, so students can practice for state assessment.
This packet includes links to three articles, worksheets to go with them, and answer keys. Each one can be used whole-class, independently, or in small groups. The articles cover three different perspectives on the issue of funding creative arts in schools today.
