Product Description
I teach my students that you need a CREW to build an argument--Claim, Reasons, Evidence, and Warrants.

Included is a powerpoint that goes over CREW and building an argument. Then there is a worksheet that gives the student practice building an argument.

I will put together a text set with at least 4 articles. I am only requiring the students to read 2 of them. They will evaluate the CREW in each article. Then in the end, they will write their own mini argument about the topic of their text set. I have also let the students pick their 2 articles--that way kids can choose a topic they are excited about.
