This argumentative writing graphic organizer is the perfect addition to any argumentative writing unit! This graphic organizer helps students write their claim, list reasons to support their claim, and outline evidence/elaboration to support their claim.
This resource helps students organize their thoughts and rationale prior to writing their argumentative essay. It provides space for a more in-depth outline.
I created this graphic organizer for argumentative essays after years of teaching argumentative writing in a middle school classroom. My students were amazing at arguing, but they struggled to organize their thinking and find evidence (as well as EXPLAIN how that evidence proved their thinking). This opinion writing graphic organizer is a great way to help students get off to a strong start in their writing!
