This worksheet helps students to transition from thinking about a thesis with 3 reasons (terminology used in informational writing) to thinking about a claim and warrants (the terminology used in argument writing). I have created a Prezi that is public-use to go along with the explanation of what argument writing is. The worksheet is meant to be a guided note taking worksheet to help them learn and practice those skills. The Prezi is for the first part of the assignment. The second half has them take theses and change them into claims with warrants. The kids had a blast doing this (they got to argue) and the prezi shows them a pretty good example of what argument is not.
