Choose Your Argument - A Common Core Aligned Opinion Writing Unit includes everything you need to teach Argument Writing to your students.
This unit follows the TC argument writing unit, using the 4 Square method to plan. Following a model argument unit where students all write an argument about Chocolate Milk, students will go through, step by step, each phase of the writing process, writing about a topic of their choice. Each lesson includes plenty of examples of the skill being taught, as well as a shared writing activity.
