Teacher Off Duty


The perfect bundle for boosting students' skills in writing smooth, cohesive arguments.

Teachers teaching argumentative writing: don't worry. I get it:

You're going through your pre-assessments, and it's like your students have never seen an outline.

They've got 3 reasons in one paragraph, some with evidence, some with none, and some weak reasoning behind just one piece of evidence.

Students are slapping quotes around like just putting them in there, with no lead-in, no analysis, proved their point.

Those that attempted to include a counterargument forgot to beat it. And most didn't even try.

And their intros and conclusions...whew. Does anyone have time to teach those paragraphs anymore?

If your students papers are in disarray, or you're not sure how to teach students how to up their organization and structure, this bundle is for you.

This pack includes every lesson about structure and organization from my full Argumentative Unit.
