Product Description

With this low-prep, argumentative writing prompt pack, you will have everything you need to assign an argumentative essay to your middle or high school students. With the high-interest topic - Should cyberbullying be illegal? - your teens will be excited to read the nonfiction textual-based stimuli included and compose an essay to state their point of view!

Student Experience: Students will use the graphic organizer to brainstorm and organize their thoughts. Next, they will read the stimulus with this prompt. Finally, they will write a developed argumentative essay complete with citations.

Included in this editable teaching pack:

-- fully developed prompt on cyberbullying

-- three complete student-written essays (excelling, emerging, and erring)

-- annotations for teaching

-- two links for informational text stimuli

-- common core standards for secondary ELA

-- an argumentative graphic organizer/outline

This resource is included in my Writing Curriculum.
