Looking for a meaningful way to wrap up your argumentative writing unit? With this resource, you can help students revise their rough drafts and evaluate example research papers to reflect upon their own areas for improvement.

Included in this argumentative writing resource, you will find:

1. An editable PPT with revising and editing points for when students have a rough draft completed.
2. Two editable example argumentative research papers that you can use to lead students through a final evaluation of their own essay. Ponting out strengths and weaknesses in the examples will help remind students of what they need to adjust in their own research paper.
3. An editable PPT rubric for students' finished essays, which is easy to use.
4. A rubric to help you manage essay revisions realistically.
5. Suggested use notes for teacher.

I recommend these materials for high school students or for advanced junior high pupils, mainly because the vocabulary is high in the example essays. Since they are editable, however, you can adjust their readability.

The example essays and rubric can also be used at the outset of an argumentative writing unit to help students understand the teacher's expectations.
