Turn "boring notes" about claims, arguments and evidence into the "coolest notes ever!" by using this information with a magic foldable.
This four-page PDF shows where to put information in the foldable and includes definitions for a claim, counterclaim, fact, opinion, strong evidence, weak evidence, reasoning and argument. In the inside panels is a close reading strategy and examples of strong and weak words. On the reverse side, there are additional questions to guide students as they analyze claims and evidence.
This document does not include how to make the foldable. For detailed directions, please visit this blog post!
