PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created this simple guideline and graphic organizer to help my sixth graders understand how an argumentative essay should be structured. They read a debate or argument (I used an online site to find many of these) and then brainstormed arguments for both sides.

Next, we completed the organizer together, going over the basics on the guide. Students are guided through the features (short explanations of each are given) that should be included in an argumentative essay: hook, thesis statement, arguments and evidence, counterargument, and conclusion.

Helpful for standardized test-prep, as argumentative is a focus of the common core and Indiana's new standards. Life-saver for the frazzled teacher (like me) who found most resources too complex for my students' age group.
