Have your students ever struggled to write a credible argument? Mine have, and this "recipe" was developed to assist their understanding of how to craft a valid argument with:
- support for their claim
This "recipe" is NOT A SOLUTION FOR WRITING ALL ARGUMENTS, but it can serve as a catalyst for discussion and further growth in writing. My students, once more comfortable with the argument genre, began to develop broader and more evidence-based debates. The process was exciting to watch!
Give it a try, and let me know how it works with your students.
