This download contains a complete lesson for an introduction into argumentative writing. Included are:
Eleven PowerPoint Slides
A Three Page Lecture Guide
One Argumentative Writing Quiz
One Quiz Answer Key
This lesson is a great way to introduce the topic to a secondary classroom and requires very little prep. The slides and lecture guide took roughly 45 minutes. I was also able to have my students discuss the topic for about twenty minutes. The quiz took 7-10 minutes.
