This is an introductory lesson to get students thinking about the elements of argumentation used in an argumentative speech or essay.
Elements of argumentation worksheet
List of links I use
The links are from worst example to best example and use humor to highlight what and what shouldn't be done when arguing. The handout can work with any video or written argumentation though if you don't like my choices. I've always had great success when using this to start off our argumentative writing unit because it gets the kids talking, analyzing, and laughing.
