Product Description
This high-interest, extensive argumentative writing unit INCLUDES:

- Documentary link & guide
- Graphic Organizers: web analysis, analysis of 7 articles (PDFs), writing organizers (chunked by evidence & paragraph construction)
- Description of assignment, intro paragraph, conclusion, and MUCH more!

- Answer keys
- Teacher directions (I feel my organizers and student directions are clear and easy to interpret)
- Movie files (please see my YouTube links sheet, as .mov files are simply too large for TpT to handle)

It generally takes my students 6-8 weeks from start to finish. You can remove components to shorten the unit; however, ALL FILES ARE IN PDF FORMAT, which means they cannot be edited. My students sit at table groups, so all articles are discussed and analyzed with 2-3 partners. Finally, I supplement daily activities with short videos (found on YouTube) relating to the accident. There are MANY relevant, engaging options out there!
