Product Description
Looking for a way to implement the new Common Core Standards into your Social Studies or US History class? This argumentative writing template includes a 6-step graphic organizer (decision, hook, summary, thesis, main arguments, counterarguments) for you to guide students in organizing their information, along with an essay template, instructions, and rubric, and a revision checklist. The topic for my sample is, "Was the South justified in seceding from the union before the Civil War?" and I included 2 pages worth of information on the different issues (slavery, high tariffs, etc.) from both the Northern and Southern perspective to make it easy for students to find their information. Although this template is about the Civil War, you can easily edit it to focus on any topic - you'll just need to find the informational text for your students to use in developing their argument.
