This resource is a step-by-step guide to teaching argumentative writing! This is everything that you need to cover middle school CCSS for argument writing.

In this unit, students will be introduced to mentor argumentative essays so that they can see what a great essay looks like. They will slowly dip their toes into the argumentative writing world by making claims and addressing counterclaims, writing argumentative paragraphs, and then eventually working their way up to writing full argumentative essays!

Along the way, they will read high interest articles about cell phones in school, athlete salaries, physical education in school, and even hover boards in schools! They will use interactive worksheets, games, group work, and so much more to learn the key concepts of argumentative writing! They will also take time to peer edit, review, and reflect on writing.

At the end of the unit, students will conference with the teacher to look at how they have grown and how they can continue to grow!

There are 20 lessons that could span for any amount of time that the teacher prefers. They are based on my own class periods--54 minutes.
