Navigating argumentative (persuasive) text can be difficult for students. Here are 7 lesson plans designed to help students comprehend, analyze, and evaluate arguments using three issues that directly impact students: school uniforms, standardized testing, and bullying.
Each lesson focus on reading skills, including:
Integrating Ideas in Text
Citing Text Evidence
Words in Context
The lessons come with objectives and learning targets, step-by-step procedures, links to articles, printable materials, and answer keys when appropriate. The last lesson is a review that provides practice answering multiple choice questions.
