Do you have students that try to argue with you or other students? If so, then this document is for you. It is titled "Attorney in Training."
This document is an independent writing assignment that walks students through an argumentative essay giving students an opportunity to explain his or her side of a discussion.
This writing assignment encourages students to explain his or her side of the argument, back his or her claim with facts, state the teacher’s side of the argument, then write a conclusion. Plus, the student is practicing writing an argumentative essay! This is a win-win for an English teacher.
