Product Description
"Yo, how many skins do you have, Bro?" Fortnite is currently ALL the rage with my students. After a recent benchmark assessment, I realized my students needed more practice with argumentative essays-How to identify them? What elements make up an argumentative essay, and how to write one effectively. So, I decided I better "join them" in this Fortnite obsession instead of fight them and created this argumentative essay activity. This activity is a great way to review and prepare students for the end-of-the-year assessment.

This product includes: An argumentative article written by Melanie Davis (ELAtion) with accompanying reading comprehension and writer’s craft questions. Area provided on article for student annotations.

This product focuses on the following skills: defining new words using context clues, text-to-text connection, text-to-self connections, text-to-world connections, identifying genre of writing, elements of an argumentative essay, determining the meaning of a writing prompt, citing textual evidence, counterclaim, using transitional words and phrases, etc.
