This resource includes two graphic organizers designed to help students organize a Claim-Evidence-Reasoning structured response, a basis for argumentative writing in science. Two options are presented to provide options to meet your needs.
The resource also includes two rubrics to assess argumentative writing -- a more specific rubric written from the student's point of view and a second more general rubric
While the organizers can be used by students to develop an entire Claim-Evidence-Reasoning written response, you could also use this organizer to help students practice drawing conclusions and writing claims, identifying evidence that supports claims, or linking evidence to claims through reasoning. Simply complete whatever portion of the graphic organizer you are NOT targeting in the activity and ask students to complete the remainder.
Additionally, could also be used to analyze a scientific text, identifying the claim, evidence provided, and reasoning provided.
Lastly, you may find it valuable to modify the rubric to specifically address the standard you are evaluating students on. I have provided an example of a CER rubric tailored to the Evidence Statements for a specific standard as a reference.
