Product Description

No planning needed! These 23 easy-to-use mini lessons have everything you need to make teaching argumentative writing a snap! In one month, your students will go from generating an idea to writing a full argumentative essay. And because you won't have to worry about the lessons, you'll have time to work with your students every step of the way!

Here's teachers are saying about my mini lessons:

  • "I love how this resource breaks down each step of the process for students to make it more manageable."
  • "Your organization is outstanding, and your thorough planning (with ALL your mini-lessons) is appreciated more than you know. Even if I, myself, spent days creating a set of mini-lessons to use in class, I don't think they would give me the the comfort and excitement that yours do."
  • "I love the option of creating a workbook for them at the beginning of the unit, and I especially love the "I Can" statements at the top of each lesson (my principal will love that, too!). The teacher pages are a huge part of what makes this so amazing, though; your instructions, notes, standards, and lesson calendars are so thorough and incredibly helpful. The name of your store really says it all...Just Add Students!!"
