Develop students' critical thinking, analysis, and argumentation skills with assertion journals!
This PowerPoint collection of assertion journal prompts asks students to ponder a series of comments about our idols and enemies. It's perfect for:
-Teaching archetypes, such as the hero's journey
-Teaching rhetorical analysis
-Thought-provoking classroom decoration
Assertion journals are a tested, successful part of my AP Language and Composition classroom (but they're great for all levels of high school!). In this product, you'll find connections to AP and Common Core Standards, a student assignment page, a rubric, an annotated teacher example, and the Heroes & Villains collection of quotations.
For an entire year's worth of assertion journals, buy the BUNDLE
and save! The bundle includes ALL of my assertion journal collections, as well as student examples!
This product is also available in the AP Language and Composition GROWING BUNDLE.
