This writing Powerpoint has over twenty slides to present argumentative writing expectations, guidelines, and directions for high school students. This is an editable Powerpoint; please edit the language or slides to differentiate for each class.

Included in this argumentative writing Powerpoint:

→ Definitions: claims, counterclaims, evidence, tone, etc.

→ Expectations: transitions, paper format.

→ Application: when do students use arguments, how can they best present their arguments, how can they use primary and ethical sources.

Included are teacher suggestions (in the speaker notes). I left this Powerpoint editable because I know teachers use different terms when covering argumentative writing. You may want to add your own details to address your students' needs, but this presentation will get you started with argumentative writing.

This argumentative activity and all of the following are in a money-saving writing bundle:
