31 argument writing journal prompts. Students will choose a prompt daily. For each prompt, the students will make a claim and use reasons and evidence to support their claims.
I have my students glue this page in their writing notebook. I use this activity for bell work. Every day or two, my students choose a prompt and complete. At the end of the month, I have my students choose three entries and publish them into formal argument paragraphs. I use these prompts the month before I start my bigger argument writing assignment. It gives them a little introduction into argument writing outlines, and the vocabulary terms involved such as claim, reason, and evidence.
