This is a graphic organizer I created for use with persuasive nonfiction literature. This is great to use along with standardized test review.
Attached to the document are two articles, current events, which provide viewpoints on President Obama's immigration plan. Students can use the graphic organizer to analyze the opinions of the authors of the articles provided or other sources of your choosing. The writing prompt included asks students to analyze the arguments for and against his policies on immigration. However you can use a different prompt if you need to. A graphic organizer is also included to use along with the writing prompt. It is done in the R.A.C.E format.
I use this activity with lower level, mainly special education/learning support, students. If your students do not need as much support, please make any necessary changes.
