Use these argument writing prompts on Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive to give students practice writing justifications, evidence, counterarguments, and refutation. Each prompt starts with an engaging claim for adolescents, including topics on some of the following: lowering the voting age, listening to music in class, self-driving cars, electronics in class, single-gender classes, tanning bed restrictions, minimum wage, and more. There are 60 topics and a blank template that allows the teacher or students to write their own claims.
Excellent for differentiated instruction, these prompts can be used to prepare for essay writing or as formative assessment, bell-ringers, exit slips, small group work, or learning station activities. Instructions for using the prompts and four pages of model responses are provided in the resource.
