Product Description
Middle Schoolers CAN write historical argument essays!

This packet will support students as they formulate a thesis statement, development of major points, gathering of evidence, consideration of counterclaims, and drafting of topic sentences.

My 7th graders found this graphic organizer incredibly useful for capturing their ideas before they begin drafting. This tool is also useful during writing conferences, as it gives teachers and students some shared documentation to confer about.
