Having difficulty getting your students to write an argument and cite textual evidence?
Instead of using a graphic organizer to help the students organize their thoughts, try this interactive notebook foldable. Students cut out the foldable and glue the spine onto a piece of lined paper. Each tab tells the students what they need to write in each sentence based on topic sentence, claim and citing contextual evidence. Once completed, the students have actually finished their final draft…. And they probably didn't even know they did it!
