Build stronger argumentative writers by giving them direct instruction on acknowledging and addressing counterclaims!
In this teaching pack, you will find everything you need to teach and practice claim, counterclaims, and rebuttals in argumentative writing. Framed with a theme from a modern-day connection, students will walk through definitions, examples, guided practice, and a professional exemplar before they finally begin to construct their own claims, counterclaims, and rebuttals.
This resource is included in my Writing Curriculum.
